Cotton coffee filter gone wild

20 Sep

We’ve changed the packaging of the reusable coffee filter. I love it and I think it’s a great improvement, what do you think? (I guess you’d only know if you knew the old packaging – I’m not too proud of it, so won’t be showing a before & after).

back1 back2 front1 front2 lots

The idea is that you keep the packaging on your fridge or notice board as decoration (hopefully my watercolour painting of coffee leaves would encourage that) and prevent the packaging from ending up in landfills.

We used recycled paper & the packaging has no off-cut paper that is thrown away. I’m really proud of our no-waste packaging!

If you’re not sure how to use this cotton coffee filter, just check out those info-graphics Louw (my other half) did! He also did the photography, which I might add, is stunning.

Buy it from me or if you like to touch before you buy, buy it from the awesome steam-punk themed coffee shop Truth Coffee in 36 Buitenkant Street, Cape Town.

A couple of free doves and a market

30 Aug

I’ll be at the Woodstock Exchange tomorrow & next Saturday (7th of September) as part of the Lock Stock Design market.

Markets remind me of big open pedestrianized areas where flocks of pigeons come to be fed by hobo’s or anyone walking around with a piece of old bread.

Now that’s when I spotted the painting I did of two doves cooing.

I’ve made it up into a gift card (which is free to download btw) that you can give to your sweetheart, because we don’t need reasons like birthdays or valentines day.

The Stable of design

26 Aug

Good news! Touchee Feelee’s products are now available at The Stable design space in 65 Loop Street, Cape Town.

The Stable (a collaborative exhibition platform showcasing innovative South African design) is an initiative by Aidan Bennetts, some of you might know him as the TV presenter for Top Billing and product designer for is own company called Aidan Bennetts.

Stable’s launch evening will be this Wednesday (28th August) from 7pm – 9pm.

They are also participating in the Open Design Cape Town Festival with an open day on Thursday (29th August) from 10am to 5pm.

If you would like to join us on Wednesday evening for the opening of, probably THE best, design space in the city of Cape Town, RSVP to info@stable.org.za.

If you live outside of South Africa, make sure to put The Stable on your itinerary next time you visit Cape Town (an absolute must for art & design lovers). It’s walking distance from the popular Kloof and Long Street and surrounded by an array of coffee shops like The Colour Red, Oumeul bakery and Skinny Legs & all.

The Fringe Arts’ golden triangle.

21 Aug

It’s been chosen as one of the top gift shopping spots in Cape Town by Lonely Planet and it’s run by two lovely ladies and their angels as they call them.

The Fringe Arts is a quirky little shop in the ever so popular Kloof Street and about a year and a half ago seen in the Victoria & Albert Waterfront. They recently opened up shop in Lonehill, Johannesburg as well – these girls just keep on growing and growing.

What makes this shop different to so many other designer goods & craft shops in South Africa? They’re out to make a difference in how designers do business, making sure they spend 2 or 3 hours with EVERY designer that stock their shelves.

They address issues like designers under-cutting themselves, pricing do’s & don’ts and encourage continues creation. So if you’re an up coming designer or a crafty knitter, The Fringe Arts is a good start.

The two Cape Town shops (I cannot speak for the Lonehill shop) carry a very wide range of small gifts and what can be described as ‘cutie’ memorabilia, a lot of knitted animals and jewelry.

They also carry  my re-usable cotton coffee filters, No-Feet-On-The-Table felt coasters and sets of white & brown tea bag bath soaks in their Kloof Street shop and also in the V & A Waterfront.

My animals at Haas

24 Apr

I’ll make this short and sweet. I’ve got 3 animals and a vintage night gown hanging at Haas.

One of these watercolours go for R1190, perfectly framed and ready to hang.

Haas is my new favorite coffee shop/ gift shop/ gallery in Bo-Kaap, Cape Town.

Btw ‘Haas’ is also (according to Wikipedia) a psychoacoustic effect, however that has absolutely nothing to do with me or the subject.

You can check them out here: http://haascollective.com/ or in real life, here:

67 Rose Street,
Bo Kaap,
Cape Town
South Africa
 

Opening Times: Monday РFriday: 7am Р5pm    |    Saturday, Sunday & Public Holidays: 8am Р3pm

‘I love my laundry’ exhibition – on right now!

25 Mar

My exhibition started on Wednesday at ‘I love my laundry’ dim sum bar in Cape Town (59 Buitengracht Street)! A laundry party is what they call it, complete with a washing line and vintage pegs.. It will be on for three weeks (so until 10th April 2013), so hop on over and order some of the most amazing pork and coriander dumplings you’ll EVER¬† EVER have… while (hopefully not) drooling over all the Touchee Feelee goodness.

Everything on show can be purchased on the spot! Also look out for some amazing work by other designers and artists like Hendriette Rademan, Heloise Bottomley, Leila Badsha and Alex Jordaan.

Citymob and the new trimming

15 Nov

My Citymob sale started yesterday morning and I’ve decided to include my eye therapy pad in the sale. But I thought it needed a bit of colour to bring the whole illustration and eye pad design together and really make it pop. So I put some bright pink piping around the edges (and a hand-stamped label for hanging your eye pad).¬† Sourcing the piping in the right fabric and colour is not something I want to try again so I made a day out of comparing every eye pad design to different fabrics and then I had piping cut and made up.¬† I’m very satisfied with how it came out – definitely¬† doing it for the other 5 designs as well.

For those who do not know Citymob, its a South African online shop that runs 7-day sales or one-month pop-up sales on any cool products – designer and more commercial things – all at discounted prices. You can find them here: http://citymob.co.za/cape-town/store.

As for the new and improved eye pad, here it is:
