JUNI THE LABEL
Made Naturally. Made Slow. Made in the Garden Route of South Africa.
Juni the Label promotes slow fashion through producing small collections of timeless styles, made locally using natural fabrics.
At Juni the Label, natural fabrics are used to create small collections which are versatile & comfortable to wear. Production is kept close to home, within the Garden Route, and factory and seamstresses are visited regularly. They work with the most lovely women who are both skilled and passionate in what they do.
The Juni The Label vision is to create a brand which is as sustainable and ethical as possible and they continually work towards this. All the Juni The Label fabrics are sourced locally, and synthetic & plastic fibers are avoided where possible.
They aim to promote clever & conscious buying.
The goal is for Juni the Label to be a brand that you can wear, knowing that you are supporting not only their dream of ethically produced clothing, but also the dreams of all local seamstresses, pattern makers & small business owners that work with us.
They have recently partnered up with Mielie Mailer, a Cape Town based company who produces 100% compostable courier bags made from mielies or corn! This means that they can now offer plastic free shipping on all online orders.
WHY I LOVE THEM
I love the smaller selection of simple, basic styles created with ethical production in mind.
Much like my own style, Juni The Label designs are simple yet classic. 100% Cotton basics in simple plains and stripes are capsule wardrobe pieces that you can wear season after season, subsequently reducing your impact on the environment.
Fast fashion and shopping fading trends is a thing of the past. Quality over quantity is the name of the game, and we can no longer live ignorantly at the expense of people and our environment.
Forward thinking with comfort and style in mind is revolutionary, and deserves to be recognised.

IN MY WARDROBE
The Poppy Dress is an effortless, pull-on style with shoulder tie details & two side slits.
I have finally purchased this as the one I have in Avocado could possibly my favourite Summer frock!
Comfort, carefree and cool describe a day spent in the Poppy. The fabric is perfect for a hot summers day and the adjustable straps mean that I can tie the bows exactly where they feel the most comfortable.
A nip in the air?
Throw on a denim or leather jacket depending on your desired look.

ON MY WISHLIST
The midi length Inka Pants have Juni's favourite wide-leg, high waist fit. Featuring a "paper bag" silhouette and removable cotton rope belt.
Firstly, Juni The Label wins first prize when it comes to naming garments. Who wouldn't want to own "The Inka Pants in Cashew"
But besides that obvious draw card 😉😂 the Inka Pants are made from the same 100% cotton fabric seen throughout the Summer collection.
Comfort is key and these pants certainly tick that box.
Pull them over costume bottoms for a trip to the beach. Pretty as ever with a hat, sunnies and a black bikini.
Or wear them to lunch with a tight white crop and your favourite espadrilles. Gold hoops are a must and so is an Aperol Spritz.
Hello Summer 🌞
The Jasmine Top in this pretty pink is the cutest Summer crop.
I have a bit of a confession to make. I am addicted to knitwear. I own far too many jerseys and I plan to get rid of at least half of them!
But in Winter I wear jerseys every day so I feel like I need a variety to change things up!
When it comes to summer however, I really battle with finding staples that aren't just a plain white tee. I love that the Jasmine top is a basic that's better.
It has just the right amount of detail to make it stand out in the crowd, yet is plain enough to wear all the way through summer, in a dozen different ways.
It's a capsule wardrobe essential and this colour couldn't be more lovely.
Cropped & wide fit
Straight hem, round neck
PRETTY AS A PICTURE
Featuring the same "paper bag" waist as the Inka Pants, the Iris shorts are an easy pull-up style which can be worn with or without the cotton rope belt.
These cool and cute babies are ideal for those hot South African Summer days.
Wear them over your bikini, with a cropped rib vest or make a set with the floral Wild Side Tshirt.
They are a Summer vacation essential, even if your vacation is at home this year!
