About isifiso.

The what, the who & the why and bonus - how!

THE
WHAT

isifiso. means ‘destiny’ or ‘choice‘ in Zulu. In everyday use, it’s similar to saying Karma

In simple terms, Karma means “what goes around, comes around”. Isn’t that fitting for a circular business?

One more way the name fits because it’s a childhood dream that has finally come true in my mid-40s.

What do I make?

I make a range of products from home care to relaxation to clothing.


Reusable products are aimed at removing single use items from your life; while the eco-friendly clothing concentrates more being inclusive & comfortable.


Everything that I offer here are things I love making. What doesn’t bring you joy while creating is not worth creating, right?

I have 2 simple reasons behind why I believe in this business. (1) Spread the message for sustainability (2) My skill to sew used to serve the under served.

THE
Why

Why on earth?

I started learning to sew when I was 12 years old and since then, I wanted my own boutique. It has taken more than 3 decades & half way across the world for this to materialise.

As for the sustainability, we as a family have been on this journey for few years now. All products made have come from our need or special requests in an attempt to reduce our waste. I am proud to say we have gone from a large bin bag every week to a small plastic bag of waste twice a month!
