The Story Behind Bug Zoo



The Bug Zoo Team designs exclusive clothing for children with the imagination and energy of children in mind. The Bug Zoo brand entered the field of children's fashion in 1990 when Bev Witte, a fashion designer, clothing technologist and more importantly, a mother, discovered the need for a brand of exceptional quality that reflects the vivacity, innocence and imagination of children. The Bug Zoo collection is an exclusive brand that ensures children are able to wear clothing that is , comfortable, durable and allows them the freedom to be children.


As a company, Bug Zoo is a manufacturer and retailer of original babies, boys and girls clothing and accessories. We operate from Cape Town, South Africa. Conway Oliver and Chantel Cooper lead a qualified team who are passionate about the brand and are inspired by the love and dreams for their children.


The company has achieved a reputation for producing exclusive quality cotton garments and together with the creative expression, this reputation has placed the Bug Zoo brand among the top brands in the world. The brand is proud of being a truly South African brand where the finest quality fabrics are used, 100% of the fabrics used are South African combed cotton knits, combed cotton lycras and cotton woven’s. Fabrics are pre-dyed and printed with original hand drawn designs.


This process ensures that the garment does not lose its shape and retains the ability to be
washed regularly without fading. Special care is taken by the Bug Zoo team to ensure that
each garment is made according to the highest standards. Each season's collection reflects
unique designs and colours that continue to incorporate creative expressions and
fun-filled energy.


Bug Zoo products are sold through various wholesale partners in South Africa and
