Adéle’s Mohair is a labour intensive cottage industry, producing designer knitting yarns, accessories and home textiles. Adéle started the business in 1983 and continues to run it adhering to fair trade and green standards.
Adéle’s Mohair is dedicated to the economic empowerment of rural women. The luxurious natural fibres of mohair (from Angora goats) and Merino wool (from sheep) are locally sourced and of the finest quality.
The current trend of recycle and reuse has created opportunities for innovative and contemporary design of new products. The workshop is located in the rural areas between the port cities of East London and Port Elizabeth of South Africa.
Adéle’s business adheres both to fair trade and green standards.
