our story

vaabs is derived from the word ‘vibes’. Although defined as an emotional state, or atmosphere, for us it represents so much more. We believe it defines culture, lifestyle and identity. vaabs is forged out of a desire to curate a culture that brings people together. 

Inspired by the people and places of South Africa, from the townships of Durban to the coasts of Cape Town, vaabs spans globally enabling individuals to share experiences and community. 


our ethos

All of our collections are curated with care by founders Tebo & Jay. We debate the intricate details to produce exceptional pieces for everyday life, hand crafted using the finest organic fabrics. 

We value more than a transaction; every time you buy a product from us, a percentage of that sale will go directly to the amazing work of Beautiful Gate.
