our concept is simple

This is Bespoke Leisurewear

We have been working tirelessly to bring textile innovation and sustainability to South African consumers.

Leggings are, and should be, a comfortable wardrobe staple. But it seems the bigger mass manufactured fashion gets, the worse the quality of reliable fashion essentials get.

Women deserve to have quality leggings that can carry them in comfort and confidence, for any occasion, any style preference and any body shape.

Mella Moon is here to solve your fashion problems.

Here’s how it works:

We don’t hold any stock. We locally knit and dye the softest, stretchiest bamboo lycra fabric, in a variety of colours, and allow you – the consumer – to choose exactly the type of style and fit you want, from a range of available designs in our catalogue – and we make them up just for you.

Our colours are limited-run, and given our variety of styles, you’ll end up with a unique pair of handcrafted leggings, suited to you.

Inclusivity is important to us, and we want every woman to know that she can and will find quality leggings with Mella Moon. 

Our sizes range from XXS to XXXL, to ensure no woman is left out. See our size chart for measurement specifications.


Everything, from the fabric to the finished product is knitted, dyed and crafted in Cape Town, South Africa, supporting the growth of our local textile industry. #Localislekker


Whatever your shape and however unique your style, we can make you leggings you’ll love. Our sizes range from XXS - XXXL for the most inclusive range of leggings you'll find in SA!


Your Style |Your Fit | Your Colour | Your Choice.

Often let down by stores not having your size? Here, we make your size for you!

Sustainable Fashion

Mella Moon leggings are handcrafted and made to order. Their durability and exclusivity means less fashion waste and no sweatshops.

In response to mass-production, which has dominated fashion retailers for several years, Mella Moon strives to promote slow fashion – encouraging the sale of locally and ethically made items in smaller quantities and of superior quality.

Mass-manufactured fashion overcompensates for consumer demand, leading to landfills full of chucked-out fast fashion that couldn’t be sold in season.

By creating slow fashion, we ensure that every item made has the consumer in mind, completely eliminating the problem of over production and ultimately over-consumption of our natural resources.

It’s our way of promoting local, sustainable, and comfortable fashion.

Our locally manufactured bamboo fabric is natural, renewable and durable. Bamboo is a highly absorbent and breathable fabric with thermo-regulating properties, keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter, so your Mella Moons will remain stylish and intact for multiple seasons of wearing and washing.

Customer Testimonials

These are form fitting and very comfortable. The fabric feels amazing on your skin as well. I really love these. They are worth every penny – if not more!

My black Betty Moons are absolutely perfect. The fabric is soft and comfortable, yet structured enough that not a bump nor a dimple peeks through. Best yet, the stretch doesn’t betray a single panty line and doesn’t go transparent when I slip them on! I can wear these with confidence all year round. It’s the perfect wardrobe staple. Yay for Mella Moons! I will never wear any other leggings as long as I live.

Absolutely LOVE these! The pair I ordered fit absolutely beautifully (I recommend checking out the size chart, as I ended up ordering in a size smaller than usual). They are super stretchy and comfy, and the high wasted cut makes for a flattering shape. I purchased the “Bae” in plain black, and can picture them being paired with a plain white collared shirt tied in front, with some chunky takkies, or worn with an over sized t-shirt to be ready for those summer hikes! Love!!
