Local suit designers Keno Custom suits will feature on the latest edition of Forbes Africa Magazine.
Forbes Africa is the continent’s first ever international business publication and focuses on technology, business, entrepreneurship and leadership.
Owned by Thobo Kerekang and Donald Nnoto, Keno Custom suits joins an admirable list of local business players in Choppies CEO Ramachandran Ottapathu, tech entrepreneur Rapelang Rabana and former Bank of Botswana governor Linah Mohohlo.
“The vision has always been to go international, this feature on Forbes means we must be doing something right. International recognition means a lot, it motivates but also puts pressure to always do better than currently,” Kerekang told Time Out.
Keno Suits caters for corporate world clientele and young urbanites, creating a unique pattern based on individual measurement and fabric of a customer’s choice. According to Kerekang consistency is one key component that the business strives on for success. “It is simple, we set a standard, goals, vision, understand our market and get better. Consistency and commitment are very key and we also believe our brand will grow as years go on,” he said.
Keno added to their design bespoke suits for females with slim fitting styles to catch up with recent trends, a part of their growth which has seen them establish connections across Africa and more recently in Zambia.
“We have recently opened up in Zambia, so the question is where do we take our brand to next but time will tell. Keno Custom suits is a about continuous growth but still maintaining the core principles which we started with, service excellence and outstanding product quality,” Kerekang said.
