Khonah K Designs
Ntombikhona Khumeni founded Khonah K Designs in 2019. Making face masks during the pandemic was quickly followed by the making of plus size dresses that were sold online. In an effort to overcome the seasonality of trade, Khona also started making and selling pinafores to individuals and businesses – allowing Khonah K Designs to take off. Khonah K Designs, who sells online and at flea markets, now owns five industrial sewing machines and four domestic machines, a cutting machine as well as a vehicle that make it easier to transport the rolls of fabric. Khonah K Designs, located in Melville, has a staff complement of seven employees and outsources production to another five SMMEs due to high demand.
