Wren Design is decreasing Cape Town’s carbon footprint, one bag at a time. This small Muizenberg fashion brand specialises in a range of accessories and organisers made entirely from recycled cement paper bags. Fast forward to 2021, and the label has been invited to various trade shows across the globe and featured in magazines such as Wired.
Founder Wendren Setzer launched the concept in 2008 after a stint in the corporate world of textile design. Having graduated cum laude at Textile Design at CPUT in the mid-2000s, she then tapped into blogging and creating on a small scale which opened the door to numerous opportunities for her label in the early days such as Design Indaba young designers programme and regular presence at local markets such as the Old Biscuit Mill.
