C A R G O hustle was started in 2019 as an online business only. We produce pillow covers, teddy bears, drawstring bags, dog toys and aprons made from recycled vintage denim. All products are designed and made in our workshop in Hout Bay by us. We feel very strongly about using recycled material and strive to use it as much as 95% in our items. The vintage material is bought from local charity organisations from around Cape Town. We were inspired by Japanese Boro patchwork technique. Both of us have lifelong interests in art and design with strong backgrounds and training in those fields.
This company is a smaller continuation of my previous store in Fort Lauderdale, FL with a stronger focus on the recycling and environmentally friendly aspect.
