Cowgirlblues is a Cape Town-based dye house and design studio specializing in South African wool and mohair. Started by Bridget Henderson, who after an MBA at Insead, a stint at Luis Vuitton Moet Hennessy in Paris, and a successful career as a strategy consultant returned to Cape Town and took up knitting again, experimenting with texture, patterns and color. Frustrated at not being able to find suitable wool locally, she decided to start spinning and dyeing her own, and so the Cowgirlblues brand was born. At Cowlgirlblues they are passionate about empowering women, especially historically disadvantaged women, creating jobs and growing our people. The brand is all about color, quality, inspiration and authenticity.
