Our Story

Hello friend,

Thank you for visiting our site.

My name is Maya, I am the designer and creator behind a treasure trove of collections championing colour and print.

Making beautiful and useful objects has always been my passion. I started my eponymous label in 2003, with a vision to celebrate the beauty of my environment through unique, hand drawn textile prints. From a small room in my parent’s house, the business has grown organically into a design and manufacturing studio employing 10 staff members.

Creativity is an ever changing and evolving process, and so is the story of my business. My brand and I have gone through many changes over the years, and today we design and manufacture a number of collections, focused on trans-seasonal pieces with interesting design details. Our offering includes Quality Core- our collection of unprinted pieces, the Renaissance Collection (our sister brand) and a No-Waste accessories collection using up all of our off-cuts and end of roll pieces to make accessories. We also design and produce custom products for local independent brands. Of course, the original Maya Prass label lives on, ever changing and evolving with its creator.

Responsible manufacturing is very important to me, as well as the quality of our garments, which is why our products have always been manufactured locally, in-studio. We do small-batch manufacturing and many of our products are made to order. This way we make what we need, we can almost always fulfil our full size offering, replenish effectively and accommodate minor alterations.

My work studio is situated in Woodstock, Cape Town, where my team and I create all of our products from start to finish. Come join us on our creative journey, and find your inspiration with Maya Prass.
