Ballo is an Ethical Fashion brand. Established in 2013 in Cape Town, South Africa, we began producing handmade eyewear from recycled and upcycled materials. Using offcuts of wood, cork, African wax fabrics, recycled paper, horn, hemp and linen in our frames to facilitate local businesses in moving towards Zero Waste.
In 2015 we began producing small runs of clothing from end-of-roll interior design fabrics. Ballo recently launched a range of clothing from exclusively natural fibre fabrics (hemp and linen) under a sub brand, the Ballo Beach Club.
The maiden voyage of the Ballo Beach Club will be the drop of a capsule of hemp clothing and Eyewear at THE ROWING BLAZERS CLUBHOUSE, 161 Grand Street, Soho, NYC on Tuesday 13 November.
