Launched in 2009, MOTH was founded by Jo Vorster. What started out as a little vintage shop slowly grew into the brand we know and love now.
We’re a small local business based in Somerset West, South Africa.
 
All our products are locally designed, printed and made from ethically sourced South African leathers and natural fabrics.
Jo illustrates and handpaints some of our designs. Some are locally printed right down the road from our studio.
Each product is then cut and sewn up by Moni and Gracie. Who, without them Moth would be lost.
Jo stays closely connected to the process to ensure that the end result keeps to the craftsmanship, authenticity and ethical values of the brand.
Above all else, Moth is a proudly South African brand.
