Fabricate began as a temporary space to showcase local design but has grown to become the go-to gift shop for Capetonians.

Fabricate is a retail store which sells contemporary South African design and is situated in the Gardens Centre.

The store launched in November 2013 as a pop-up festive season gift shop in Cavendish Square, Cape Town, and a year later, opened the doors to their second pop-up shop in the Gardens Centre.

Fabricate started as a temporary space to showcase local design but has grown to become the go-to gift shop for Capetonians and tourists visiting the ‘mother city’.

Co-owner Farzanah Badsha, says Fabricate aims to provide their customers with carefully selected gifts and treats for themselves at a variety of price points while offering well designed, high quality and locally manufactured goods.

We provide a showcase for over one hundred South African designers. With products ranging from home wear, jewellery and stationery to natural body products and more.

Our main criteria is offering hundred percent locally designed products.

Badsha runs the store with her born and bred entrepreneur sister, Leila Badsha and her background is cemented in contemporary arts.

The fabric business employs two full time and four-part time staff in addition to the many independent designers that they provide a platform for.
