About Us


At Juni the Label, we use only natural fabrics to create small collections which are versatile & comfortable to wear. We keep production close to home, within the Garden Route, and visit the factory and seamstresses regularly. We work with the most lovely women who are both skilled and passionate in what they do.  

Our vision is to create a brand which is as sustainable and ethical as possible and we will be continually working and taking steps towards this. We source all our fabrics locally, and avoid synthetic & plastic fibers where we can. 

We aim to promote clever & conscious buying. Unfortunately, there is a vast amount of brands, big and small, that produce cheaply and fast, or import from those that do, at the expense of people and the environment.  We want Juni the Label to be a brand that you can wear, knowing that you are supporting not only our dream of ethically produced clothing, but also the dreams of all local seamstresses, pattern makers & small business owners that work with us.

If you would like to know more, please contact us and we will happily get in touch!

Our Fabrics

Why we avoid synthetic fabrics - Plastic is undeniably polluting our land & ocean and a huge contributor to this is the textile & clothing industry. Not only does the production of synthetic fibres involve numerous chemicals and huge amounts of energy, but the end product itself is also polluting in a subtle yet pervasive way - every time the piece of clothing is washed, microfibres are released into the water system, adding to the accumulation of micro-plastic pollution in the ocean, and after many washes, the clothing eventually breaks down into smaller pieces that never biodegrade! As much as we love Juni the Label, we don't want to produce clothing that will be around forever and ever, long after they are old & worn! So we choose natural fibre fabrics, which are kinder to us & our environment.
100% Cotton - There are so many good things about cotton. Not only is it super comfortable and soft to wear, it is also the most breathable natural fabric, making it perfect for Summer. Cotton is also 100% biodegradable, meaning once the clothing has eventually become too worn, you can literally cut it up into small pieces and bury it, allowing it to decompose. 
100% Linen - We love this fabric. The look and feel of it, is beautiful. Made from the Flax plant, a resilient crop that requires little water, Linen is the most sustainable natural fabric choice. Besides it being a strong and durable fabric, it softens over time and is always comfortable and easy to wear.

Our Packaging

We believe that we should all do what we can, to minimise our waste. This is why we package all online orders in drawstring bags, handmade by us at home. We sew them from the off-cuts we get back from production, as well as the small sample fabrics we collect during the design process. We have found this to be pretty efficient in using up most of the fabric that would otherwise be waste.
The smaller bits that are left, are collected and sent to Cara from Cara's Sleepwear who has an amazing initiative of sewing and stuffing blankets and mattresses for a local crèche.

We encourage you to re-use them! They make cute travel bags for your toiletries, or gym clothes, or even to package gifts for friends or family.

We then pack the drawstring bag into a 100% compostable courier bag for plastic free shipping!

Throughout our journey with Juni, we will be sharing snippits of behind the scenes in hopes that you get to know and appreciate the people and the process behind the making of our clothes. You are buying more than just a garment- you're investing into the lives of local people who are treated as friends and family and deserve to be paid a living wage.
