August is a proudly South African clothing range which brings you a complete collection of ready-to-wear garments and accessories. This range, which is inspired by the South African lifestyle, initially became known for its signature tunics. August uses both local and international fabrics and prints, and all the garments are hand-made by local craftswomen, who make use of traditional techniques which have been passed down through generations. The Artisan Collection features beautiful limited edition pieces. The hand-crafted production techniques give the collections a unique quality, and this helps to sustain age-old crafts such as hand-embroidery and embellishment.
