Hey Dolly!

26 Aug

These doll portrait cushions are not for everyone, I know. But once they are spotted by their people it’s love at first sight.
If they speak to you, get one 🙂

They were all painted in watercolour from vintage dolls that inspired me and are printed with natural inks onto thick linen-rich fabric that can be washed and ironed.

Sneak Peek into my Touchee Feelee life

17 Apr

Ever wondered how it’s made? Today I’d like to share a special feature with you, get to know me a little better by reading Etsy’s interview with me here.

I open up the door to my studio and share my process from sketch to final textile product and everything in between!

Touchee Feelee at Design indbaba

5 Mar

I had a very close neighbour this year at the Design Indaba expo, talented industrial designer & woodworker, Louw Roets (some of you already know that he is also my other half!)

We decided to merge our two stands and treat it as one, which proved very interesting (more about that later).

I had 6 cushion ranges on show but the Nautical & Monochromatic ranges were definitely the most popular! And of course the Doll Portraits always attracts very passionate people.

Thank you to everyone who’s made this the best Design Indaba yet!

Black and white working together, side by side in stormy weather…

18 Nov

OK, the title might evoke scenes from the 90’s but I just couldn’t resist. Apologies if the song’s going to be stuck in your head for the rest of the day…
My Monochromatic cushion range features warm and cold tones of black and gray in my loose watercolour style.
The Star Anise and Mushrooms are from my previous range, but the Liquorice cushion (black abstract brush stroke design) and the Lemon leaf as well as the Bottlebrush leaf are new.

These pillow covers are available on my online store, sold in Rands and also on my  Etsy shop.

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:

My new cushion range

3 Dec

It’s always so exciting to see a painting go from an image in my head, to a watercolour painting on paper to an object you can touch.

I haven’t spared anything with this new luxury range of cushions. Everything from the fabric to the ink to the zip and back was chosen for a reason.

Coral-orange, turquoise & black are the colours I’ve been obsessing about lately.

vashou styled styled styled groen.vashouThe fabric is soft and cuddly, and won’t fade in the sun, because it’s a mixture of linen and cotton which makes it incredibly durable. The natural oatmeal colour, makes it practical and won’t show dirt marks as quickly as a white fabric will (parents will love me for this :)).

Then the print is made using natural inks that can be washed and ironed over – although I always suggest ironing on the revers. And the best part is that it’s soft to the touch, unlike screen printed fabric.

And guess what? Shipping in South Africa is still FREE.

If you need any more convincing, just look at the beautiful photographs of the cushions done by my husband, Louw: http://store.toucheefeelee.co.za/ranges/cushions   (click the image to see more of each cushion).

If you’re in Cape Town, come and say hi at The V & A Waterfront. I’m in a pop-up shop in the Red Shed until the end of December!
