Design Team creates feel-good printed fabrics, inspired by nature and every-day life on the African continent. Cotton and linen base cloths are custom dyed to a unique colour palette and printing is done by hand using flatbed screen printing techniques.
Amanda Haupt and Lise Butler started DesignTeam while completing their Textile design and Technology degrees in 2000.
What started out as a single stand at a trade show focusing on scatter cushions, grew to a brand that has become recognizable and loved by South Africans and sold across the globe. We believe that textiles are the most widely used and understood design medium because of its tactile and functional nature. Design Team strives to make good design accessible with a positive narrative through pattern and colour – now also available as wallpaper!
