Last year I decided that it would be a good idea to put together a collection of tea towels called Iconic Cape. My dear friend Karina was over from Holland and we chatted and I shared my vision with her. No sooner had she returned home, that out of the blue, she sent me pics of some really lovely paintings of Bo Kaap and Muizenberg. I was delighted and immediately asked her if I could use them.
I was so happy to spend a few days with her last week. Karina loves sketching…
Here is the original painting of Muizenberg huts and Penguins from Boulders beach.
Below is the original painting of Bo-Kaap with Table Mountain in the background.
We interpreted these beautiful images on screen …
And we are both thrilled with the results! These quality Tea Towels are printed on 100% pure linen and available online and at our store at the Waterfront.
They make perfect gifts and are definitely a must have memento of Cape Town to take back home with you to remind you of your time spent in our fabulous city.
Thank you Karina for this gift: your artwork will be appreciated by many!
Kaapse Klopse coming soon..
May art and the work of local craftsman continue to inspire our own inner creative spirit.
