Previously known as TradeUp. We help seamstresses start or grow their small businesses through their creativity, design and sewing skills. You will learn how to develop your product, how to design, create patterns and access new markets, grow your customer base, and most importantly increase the financial sustainability of your sewing business.

Where do we offer the Remake programme?

The programme is available at our Cape Town branch only. We select up to 125 participants annually through our

I always wanted to have my own business. I dreamed of being a fashion designer and making clothes. I never studied sewing. I learned everything on YouTube! I knew this was for me! TCB has taught me how to maintain and sustain and manage a business. I’ve learnt money management. This is what I needed to ensure that my clothing design business is sustainable.My business is growing one step at a time. I can already see the difference. I was feeling stuck. But now I am breathing again.”
