Beautiful, sophisticated, timeless, high quality, easy to wear and most importantly, made in South Africa. These are the best words to describe Jane Sews, a collection designed by Amy Venter who is inspired by nature’s authenticity.
“My design and making hope to reflect this same spirit; every design element is carefully considered and close attention is paid to fine construction and finish. With Jane Sews I sought out to create uplifted staples and timeless pieces that are suitable for all seasons. The small run collections are crafted from high quality, natural fabrics and are both functional and easy to wear.”
Each collection is designed by their small in-house team who do not outsource or mass produce. Amy Venter focuses her brand on quality and minimal design translated into key pieces that you can build your wardrobe around.
