About Us

It started with a simple question: How can we unleash the boundless potential of SA’s female creators?

What started as a form of creative expression for ourselves soon became a much more ambitious vision when we realised how much the idea could be improved by working with other women who were also creating beautiful things. And so, Collectif was born; a space of imagination and creativity that would support local female talent and encourage thoughtful consumerism.

As each and every product we create ourselves or in collaboration with our carefully-curated group of like-minded female entrepreneurs is totally unique, Collectif is the only place in the world where you can buy these once-off pieces. Quality and design are of the greatest importance, so each item is crafted with care to last and bring moments of joy to your home or to a loved one.
