Originating in 2010, Basic Essentials initially supplied high-quality leather and fabric handbags, soon also branching out to interior design. They recognized a demand in the market for a clothing brand satisfying the needs of the selective client desiring something more than mainstream fashion accessories.
Thus they established a brand supplying basic clothing essentials for this niche market.
A one-stop-shop for a woman “on the go” Basic Essentials offers a wide selection of handcrafted quality garments, belts, jewellery and shoes via their easily accessible online store which even caters to clients’ individual needs.
Naming each product after the inspiration for that accessory or garment, they add a special bit of magic to their client’s lives. Each item in the various seasonal collections addresses the gaping need for women to find clothes that suit their particular body shape.
Experience the luxury of outstanding quality, handmade fashion designs created and manufactured in South Africa. Basic Essentials are proud to be creating job opportunities and empowering all their employees through skills development while in their service.
