About Us

Lonzi&Bean Maternity was born in 2015 after best friends for 20 years - Ilona Wylie, affectionately known as Lonzi and Claire Neil (Bean) - discovered it was near impossible to find maternity and breastfeeding clothing in South Africa that was flattering, comfortable, practical and lasted more than a few months. So they decided to create a range that they wished they could find when pregnant and breastfeeding their babies.

With Ilona (a former advertising art director) in London handling the marketing, branding, advertising and design, and Claire (a former project manager and exhibition organiser) in Jhb overseeing manufacture and sales and running the day-to-day bits, they make a formidable team - with some of the most crucial business decisions being made over Whatsapp at 3am.
