Rooted in the township of Gugulethu, Our Home, in Cape Town, the young street wear brand, T-Squared seeks to provide locally produced wearable’s for the student and first-time working class market. Fusing trendy street style elements with the essence of ilokishi*, T-Squared creates a fresh approach to clothing brands established and functioning out of townships. Many are born but only a few survive the tough journey of developing and growing into a sustainable brand. The brand was inaugurated in 2008 by the current Creative Director, Thabiso Mokomele, whose vision of building a local brand from his place of birth has subsequently come true thanks to his own belief and hard work.
“Our mission is to expand our brand nationwide,” gleams Thabiso Mokomele. “We are striving to be a local leader in this industry and we know this won’t happen overnight. Hard work and commitment is definitely required.”
T-Squared has recently launched their winter collection which is available from their pop-up store in Gugulethu. Stay part of their conversation with the hashtag #HandCraftedGarmentsSince08.
