Item Details
Art by illustrator and branding guru, Mariana Lancastre.

The design is a variation of her much loved illustration, Americanah.

"The "Americanah" artwork is inspired by the novel with the same title by writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I was caught by the story of this woman that "becomes a black woman" when she moves from Nigeria to America. Her natural hair is a powerful symbol to address racism, loneliness and home and I wanted to pick this idea, by transforming an African pattern into a hectic urban landscape." - Mariana

Where art meets textiles : In pursuit of a good life

Something Good Studio is a collaborative textile design studio.

We work with artists and designers who communicate strong positive messages via their work.

Together we experiment in creation of exclusive homeware and fashion textile pieces characterised by a fun sense of adventure.

In community, we use art and design to encourage well-being, happiness and purpose. We aim to make a gentle, positive impact in the lives of our much-loved clients and collaborators, and in the process leaving the world a better place.

What started out as a small side-line project in 2018 in pursuit of a live worth loving, blossomed into a full-blown business with a good cause.

All designs are made in small, limited edition batches.
Ethically made in South Africa using locally sourced, sustainable materials.
