We are heading online with NOYO!

Since launching our first collection in 2020, customers have been keen to shop our pieces even when they cannot make it to our Port Elizabeth boutique. Taking our collections online has always been an ambition for Bequia Threadworks and several years in the making. We are therefore thrilled to announce our new brand NOYO: an ethical and sustainable fashion brand based right here on the island of Bequia, which will soon be available to shop online.

Creating NOYO was the natural next step in our organisation's journey. Now operating with a brilliant team of 15 women from seamstresses to an in-house designer, it was the perfect time to expand internationally and share Bequia’s beauty and culture beyond our shores. This concept was the inspiration behind the brand’s name NOYO, which derives from the Noyau vine, often translated to mean “core” or “seed”. Like a seed, we started small by training a group of women in sewing skills. Since then, we have opened our own boutique, created four designer collections, and will now be launching our premium fashion brand with a focus on resort and summer pieces made from sustainable fabrics.

Each new collection will continue to be designed, developed and produced in-house at our Production Centre on Bequia, and will soon be available to shop from our international e-commerce website. These high quality pieces will be ethically made with a slow fashion mindset, ensuring NOYO is in your wardrobe for years to come.

Join us on this journey and be the first to know when we launch NOYO online.
