Sbu Ngwenya lets us in on his socks business

This socks empire employs 60 people in its Cape Town factory and an ace design and business team in Johannesburg where every range is conceived.

If you stand almost 2 metres tall, your socks tend to show because trousers aren’t made in your size. It’s the ideal problem for celebrity entrepreneur Sbu Ngwenya whose business began when his mother told him he had so many socks he should sell some.

Instead of manufacturing in the Far East, Sbu chose to make his socks in South Africa and create jobs where they are needed.

Following his mother Nonhlanhla Ngwenya’s suggestion to sell his socks - the business was born. It was lessons from his grandmother Salamina Mimi Molakeng that made it a success.

Sbu chose to sell limited runs of each design and price them as an exclusive item. Decisions which identified him among Africa’s thirty most promising entrepreneurs under 30 and won respect from Thato Kgatlhanye.

Skinny Sbu Socks will officially be available at Markham stores nationally from Friday 9th February 2018.
