We cut, make and trim your designs into the lovely, finished products that you imagined them to be.

OUR STORY

The Sewing Café was established in 2012 as a professional apparel factory. We cut, make and trim your designs into the lovely, finished products that you imagined them to be. We produce anything from small to large runs and we offer pattern making and sampling services to go along with our CMT Studio.

Our CMT Studio may be our primary service, but ultimately our love for fashion, textiles and fabric is what drives us. Since 2012 we have trained more than 100 unskilled and unemployed people from the Masiphumelele and Ocean View communities in Cape Town. We offer our CMT studio as a hub where textile entrepreneurs begin their business journeys by using our equipment to sew and create their unique designs.

We teach Masiphumelele High School kids from grades 8 to 10 how to sew in our Afternoon Sewing Club program. We are proud to have taught hundreds of students how to sew. Many of our students have started their own businesses and some continue to sew for us on a part or full-time basis while others have secured employment in the sewing sector through the skills that we have taught them. Our sewing students have developed into well trained and professional staff who have produced hundreds of different orders. These include women’s fashion, school uniforms, children’s clothing, underwear and home wear.

The CMT products we produce are the sustaining life force of what we do. They enable us to continue training, teaching and supporting small businesses and high school students. We are very proud to continue our partnership with Masicorp and Dr. Wendy Ryan’s Life Skills Program which has been in operation since the birth of our journey.
