MAXHOSA Africa is a South African knitwear brand founded in 2010 by Laduma Ngxokolo. This was done with a desire to explore knitwear design solutions that would be suitable for Amakrwala (Xhosa initiates).
Their original vision was to create a modern Xhosa inspired knitwear collection that would be suitable for this market. As someone who has gone through this process, Laduma felt that she needed to develop quality knitwear that celebrated the traditional Xhosa aesthetic (Xhosa is a Bantu Language spoken by over 7 Million people in South Africa). to be the best source of inspiration for knitwear, which they then reinterpret in modern knitwear fashion.
MAXHOSA's designs showcase the beauty, culture, language in African Fashion.
