The Mama Jersey is a piece from The Seen Collective’s core collection of handmade knitwear from Johannesburg. It is an oversized, kid mohair and merino blend jersey available in different colourways.
Dignified and meaningful employment makes a huge difference in an individual’s existence. Members of the collective are paid very well per piece knitted. This supplement to their pensions is hugely welcome. But the benefits of the project go far beyond that. A new sense of purpose and pride in producing the work is palpable.
