Something Good Studio is a Proudly South African collaborative design studio with a cause.

We celebrate local artistry by collaborating with South African talent in creation of playful, aesthetically pleasing homeware & fashion pieces that can be seen as the interface between art and design.

Something Good Studio launched at No End Art Gallery in April 2018 with an artist-designed blanket range which have been awarded ‘The Best Surface Design Award’ at 100% Design in August 2018.

In collaboration with our carefully selected, all-girl creators,
we have expanded into various product categories including our online art gallery, fashion and ceramics.

All items are made in small batches whilst minimising waste and maximising the design process.

The core of Something Good Studio is rooted in South Africa and every aspect of the brand reflects that with a contemporary twist, using locally sourced materials.

By purchasing a SMTNG GOOD piece, you are supporting women in the South African art & design industry, uplifting a small up-and-coming business as well as local manufacturing.

 

Something Good Studio’s mission is to do good in all things, to do as much good as possible, as often as possible.

We create product with intention, Proudly South African pieces with a modern global aesthetic that will add personality and character to any space.

Our mission is to help artisan women in our country generate sustainable income whilst investing in South African resources and simultaneously growing the economy.

We believe in the power of collaborations, we connect with the people behind our creations, embracing their specialised skills to share their creative journey with the world.

PRJCT: GOOD

By 2020 we will create a sub-division within Something Good Studio,
a Non-Profit organisation named PRJCT: GOOD.

A huge part of our vision is to create a range of charity blankets by means of sponsorship – to be handed to anybody & everybody in need; both humans and animals.
A blanket is a basic necessity during cold & rainy months, a necessity that so many are without.
Even though there are many charity blanket runs, we think bigger.

We offer a personalised service where our collaborative partner has the option of customising the artwork to create awareness for their cause.

By sponsoring a SMTNG GOOD blanket, you will have the power of making a significant difference in the life of the underprivileged by donating a piece of your cause in the form of a functional 100% cotton blanket that when taken care of, will last for years, and is not harmful to the environment.

This is a vision that could help shape and shift the world into being something greater, to communicate a strong message of goodness & prosperity, and it’s important for us to be a part of that evolution.
