We offer creativity, quality, value and personal service with an African flavour.

Who we are

African Praise is a family owned business with a “hands on” approach.  All our staff and suppliers are treated as friends and we aim to deliver the service that we expect. We personally deal with all orders and this allows us to offer a personalized and professional approach to our customers.

The quality that we aspire to in our products is reflected in the people who buy them.  All of our staff take pride in their efforts and this shows in the quality of the goods we produce.  This has led to the growth of our business from 2003 even surprising us.

Value and Values
In African Praise we bring into the business the values that we strive for in our personal lives.  We believe that through honesty, integrity, hard work and good service we are able to meet the needs of our customers.

We love to design and create! This is evident in African Praise embroidery designs and the range of “Contrast Shirts” that we bring out annually.  We rise to the challenge of creating new products and working with customers to produce personalized designs.

We believe that in our business we need to be socially and morally responsible.  We take pride in supporting our local economy and hence all garments are manufactured in Cape Town and most of the garments are handmade at our Studio.

Our products are “fairly” made in that we and our suppliers adhere to all the labour laws and other conditions pertinent to employing people in this country.

The majority of people employed by us and our suppliers are women.   We try to make sure that the work we create is sustainable and slowly as our business grows we create sustainable employment.
