About Us

Inspired by life, Maya Prass creates vibrant, feminine and wearable clothing, designed with love. She launched her eponymous brand in 2000, after winning the 1999 FairLady Young Designer’s award.
Maya’s passion lies in creating and combining unique textile prints in an array of seasonal colours. Each season’s textile prints are hand designed and printed locally, then combined in an eclectic mix of colours and textures. The textiles are cut into a collection of garments, both sophisticated and whimsical, with easy, form- flattering silhouettes.
With a passion to support the South African industry, the label endeavours to keep as much of the creation process local, from designing and printing, to manufacturing. A dedicated and passionate team manufactures all Maya Prass garments by hand at her Cape Town studio.
