We are just a normal, everyday South African family who truly love all our country has to offer. So when an opportunity to acquire Getthis came along it seemed like the perfect choice for us. In October 2021 after much debate and discussion, we decided to take the leap to take on Getthis as a new adventure.
Our values of buying local and supporting local, don’t just come from a place of loving local products (although we absolutely do!). it’s personal, very personal as our family has a long standing history within the SA clothing industry spanning over 40 years, so we understand and have experienced the long term impact of not supporting local.
By supporting a local designer, we are also supporting the industries and families behind them. Each of our designers, manufacture locally and we feel proud and privileged to be associated and aligned to this ethos.
“Supporting local, loving local” are all slogans that I have often seen and I truly believe in that, but for us it is about the depth of that statement and what it means for all of us as South Africans
Homegrown products and beautiful fashion has been my passion for many years but it didn’t overtake my desire to contribute to society. With Getthis, I somehow get to do both, indulge my passion and know that I am contributing to a greater cause, even if just in a small way.
We want to do more and we will in the months to come. For now, it seems enough to provide a platform for South African designers to sell their trade, whilst knowing we are supporting a home somewhere in South Africa for those that work to produce these items. Whilst we also support other brands, our key focus is to support local. In the months to come we will expand our portfolio to include various other homegrown categories and we hope that you support us in that journey as we strive to achieve a sustainable community for the future
