City of Cape Town

The South African Clothing and Textile industry, a traditionally strong sector locally that contributed R4.4-billion to Cape Town’s export sector in 2017, has suffered greatly throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. Through the efforts of events such as allfashion sourcing Cape Town – which the City of Cape Town is proud to partner – we can take the necessary steps towards restoring this sector.
