Soil Design is a boutique graphic design and illustration studio based in Cape Town which is recognized for its classic designs and artwork. This enthusiastic design company was formed by sisters, Kara and Mieke Wertschnig, one being a graphic designer and the other an illustrator with collective expertise in identity, print, packaging, textiles and the African environment.

Soil Design is largely inspired by the beauty surrounding them in their own city, and over time this has influenced them to create their own range of premium, boutique South African wear and accessories, under the brand Soil & Co.

Soil & Co were privileged to have their mother, Lynette Wertschnig, who has been in the clothing industry for most her life, collaborate with them on expanding the range. In 2014 they opened their first retail outlet at the Watershed, V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.
