The story behind Pone Creatives
Lesego Maloka - Director
Lesego Maloka, is a creative, modern African textile designer on a mission to spark joy through colour and heritage.
Watching her late grandmother work as a seamstress and knitter sparked her interest in fabric at a young age.
Her curiosity and creativity matured as she grew up in the colourful, eclectic home her mother put together, using beautiful homeware linen.
After few years in various art departments in the film industry, she finished her interior decorating studies and started experimenting with her own African inspired, modern fabric designs.
The excitement with which these were received accelerated her work from notebooks to full-fledged carpets, featuring in major design shows in South Africa.
Deeply rooted in her mother’s and grandmother’s influences, her brand Pone Creatives was born.
Today Lesego specializes in jacquard weaving her textiles for home furnishings to create colourful, heritage loving homes.
