The Ninevites is a creative enterprise and platform to explore under-told narratives of life from Southern Africa using textiles, design and imagery

It is a celebration of black aesthetics

We design textiles, curate events and keep pushing to tell our
stories in ways that reflect their vast beauty and invention


We design textiles in collaboration
with artisans in Southern Africa and Peru using local materials


We curate an annual symposium where we invite industry players to present their work, discuss and co-create together

We host and facilitate skills transfer workshops where artisans can share, exchange knowledge and best practices
