The business was born as a passion project in 2017. After spending 2 years refining our trade and getting a feel for the market, the business was officially registered in 2019.

During those two formative years,  the majority of time was spent learning the complexities of pattern making, designing with intent, branding and learning the unique attributes and characteristics of using different materials.


We are a small scale fashion accessory brand and manufacturer operating within the fashion and textile industry.

We produce accessories with the focus on traditional South African fabrics and prints as well as modern, versatile and utilitarian designs.


As a brand, we want South Africans to wear House of Joslyn with pride and to support locally produced products.

Our main objective is to offer unique, affordable, quality products and to tell a story of diversity, creativity and vibrance through our collection.


We make it our mission to purchase fabrics from local manufacturers in South Africa as much as possible.

Our goal is to bring value to the textile industry as well as building our economy by supporting local suppliers and gaining experience from those with a long history in the industry.

LOCAL Creativity

Innovation plays an important part in our business where we are inspired to create original designs, by bringing you the customer along our journey of creating unique pieces.

Our brand is about connecting communities through our shared love for new ideas.


You don’t need to break the bank to wear local products. Since we control all aspects of design and production, we are able to provide you with high quality, affordable products.

Local Flair

South Africa has a great wealth of history, tradition, culture and stories. We try to capture some of that local flair and infuse it into our designs. Let’s help you show the world your story.


We source all of our materials locally, from respected, reputable suppliers who have been doing what they do best for generations. We strive to provide you with the best materials and workmanship available.



I am Nicole Abrahams, the founder of House of Joslyn (Pty) Ltd.

What started as an idea is slowly turning into the brand I had envisioned. I am a self taught designer, pattern maker, machinist and entrepreneur. My goal is to showcase the beauty of South Africa through the lense of product design. I grew up in Cape Town in the 90’s at the height of the textile industry. I knew, from a young age, that this would be the path for me to take.

In life there is always room for improvement and I am indeed looking forward to more growth to come.
