Our Purpose



Colours of a Kind Skills Training Workshop Gugulethu

Empowering and supporting women is at the heart of what we do. There are two parts to Colours of a Kind: In addition to supporting socially-minded South African businesses through our online retail store, we have also founded a non-profit company in South Africa that provides skills training and employment opportunities to women in Cape Town’s underprivileged communities. We have committed to donate the majority of our retail profits to support this programme.

Our non-profit organisation, in collaboration with our partner brands and local facilitators, provides training in both crafts and business so that unemployed women will be equipped with the skills they need to enter the workforce. By providing the opportunity for women to become a valuable employee for one of our partner brands or elsewhere in the creative industry, or start their own enterprise and perhaps one day become one of our featured designers, Colours of a Kind aims to create a self-sustaining ecosystem.  

We believe in empowerment and inclusion through employment, financial independence and successful entrepreneurship and your purchase supports this!
