Welcome to Design Works. We are a specialist company within WorksGroup offering clients a range of services and solutions around the design and technical engineering of textiles, uniforms and lifestyle clothing. Drawing on more than 50 years of experience in the business, our skilled designers are qualified to create bespoke outfits and fashion apparel for various industries, including the culinary and entertainment, corporate, banking, retail, motor, industrial, building, safety and security, medical and health sectors.

Design Works’ creative consultants are young and enthusiastic, and possess the creative flair and artistic ability, technical proficiency and professional acuity to create intelligent apparel solutions. We have collaborated with top professionals from various industries to fashion superior garments and work closely with our clients to better understand and fulfill their unique requirements.


At Design Works we create 2D designs which are used, often as repeat designs, in the production of knit, weave and printed fabrics or textile products. Designers conceptualise and turn a client’s design brief into a required apparel range using the latest computer-aided design (CAD) packages. Technical services then seamlessly translate the design concept into garments with the help of sophisticated Lectra design software, which is fully integrated with our state-of-the-art cutting rooms and machinery.


Design Works is proudly ISO 9001 certified and SABS approved manufacturers. We believe that building long-lasting, top-quality client relationships is as important as the superior quality of our workmanship.
