More herringbones & something for your beach house!

10 Oct

I promised more herringbone patterned cushions a few weeks ago. Well, let’s just say I didn’t stop there 😉
I’d like to share some new designs with you bit by bit, not all at once.

It’s like eating chocolate fondant really, really slowly, savour each bite…

Hello Weylandts

13 Jun

I think by now everyone’s heard about the drama I had with Woolworths in 2013. It discouraged me to work with any other large retailers out of fear of being ripped off again.
However, I was approached by Weylandts in March this year and after much thought decided to grab hold of this opportunity with both hands!
And I can say, so far it’s been wonderful. I’m very happy to have found a retailer that better understands design and supporting local artists and designers.
Visiting their Green Point showroom in Cape Town is a must. Make a day out of it – you do not want to rush through it. The ambiance and textures drive me crazy (in a good way :)).

For those outside of Cape Town, go here:

South Africa:

Johannesburg: Fourways & Kramerville
Knysna
Pretoria: Brooklyn
Umhlanga

Australia:

Below are the cushions you can find in stores for this season:

The hummingbird cushion continued

18 Nov

Good morning!

Today is a good day, so for now I would like not to talk too much about WW, but I’m definitely taking matters further as their story is still full of holes and I stand by every word that I blogged about on Friday the 18th of October.

Just to clear any doubt, I do have permission from the late R.W Scott’s son, Gregory Scott to use the photograph of the Ruby Throated hummingbird as a reference for my painting. Gregory is a wonderful photographer who lives in the US and uses high speed flash techniques to capture these tiny creatures. These techniques allow for the amazing feather detail (see here: http://www.gregscott.com/).

On a more joyful note, I would like to introduce the, new and improved, hummingbird cushion:

_DSC7540 _DSC7780 _DSC7698I decided to make it 50cm x 50cm so that South Africans can easily find an inner. I also chose a higher quality fabric, a cotton linen blend in a natural beige colour. The cotton linen (as apposed to pure linen or pure cotton) is more resistant to UV light and won’t fade in the sun like a pure fabric will.

This cushion is entirely locally produced using natural inks to print the hummingbird. It is heat cured for durability producing an image that is set right into the fibres of the cushion that will not crack over time, making the print soft to the touch as apposed to a layer on top of the fabric like screen printing often does.

The cushion cover has a hidden zip at the bottom for easy removal. And a Touchee Feelee label on the upper right corner.
