Afridirndl® & Amaka Indigo was established in 2013 as a family business in Durban by Michelle Andrews and Sandra Andrews-Brandstätter, two South African Born passionate business women and entrepreneurs. In January 2014 the Labels signed off the agreement for its first official Atelier and Distribution centre in Linz, Urfahr.

In July 2014 Afridirndl® & Amaka launched its collection for the first time in its own Atelier. Afridirndl® is our Bavarian Tradition Line and Amaka the Casual Wear Line.

Now being the proud owners of two business locations across the globe, based in Austria and South Africa respectively, ensures fashion made for the individual globalist, a fusion of European craftsmanship with attention to detail with African creativity and cultural pride.
