Zoo Collective was founded by Rodé de Jager, after a group of mothers in her community saw a need for fashionable clothing during their motherhood journey. Along with the clothing line, a need was seen for clothing manufacturing and job creation in East London, South Africa. Rodé, together with her father Jaco Brand, started what is now known as SOW CMT. The heart between Zoo Collective and SOW CMT is to help the broader community and the poverty in South Africa. The Zoo Collective has since broadened its horizons from motherhood, to everyday wear, to a family platform with different collections to select from.
