Afromontane is an international ethical clothing brand created by South African entrepreneur, Sandra Bold. Afromontane is inspired by Sandra’s passion for the outdoors, her eye for exceptional design, and her commitment to nature conservation.
Sandra grew up in the foothills of the Maluti Mountains on the border of Lesotho, born to adventurous, carefree parents who spent most of their leisure time rock climbing the “koppies” of the Eastern Freestate or pioneering snow skiing in Lesotho. Sandra worked as a physiotherapist in Johannesburg for many years and, in 2006, moved to Cape Town with her husband and son. There, Sandra felt connected, alive and at home. She realised that her passion for the Western Cape’s beautiful wilderness had awakened her creativity.
Sandra is motivated to share this sense of connectedness and inspiration with others through her clothing design. She merges style and function to enable people to explore the beauty of nature around them, whilst looking stylish and feeling comfortable.
