I thought there was a gap in the market for textiles that showcase our diverse heritage specifically indigenous designs.— Sino Xaba, founder of Egoli Textile Designs
She says there is a shortage of skills in terms of textile designs. Xaba offers workshops and training in textile design.
I am really looking forward to taking this forward and having partners on board who can help us out with design software as well as computers because the learners that I train do not have access to computers.....— Sino Xaba, founder of Egoli Textile Designs
