I started painting textiles from my garage in 1993, it is hard to believe that so many years have passed and we have indeed grown from strength to strength! It all started with a desire to earn a good living doing something creative and contributing to poverty alleviation in South Africa.

My business grew into a family business and this is the solid foundation on which it rests. The people that work for us are vital to the success of this business. Everything is handmade, both hand-painted or hand-printed, and therefore very labour intensive and exacting.

We are very proud to have the opportunity to train and employ many previously disadvantaged individuals both locals as well as from other African countries, many of whom come from informal settlements. We have a policy of job creation and training especially for unskilled or semi-skilled workers and in our small way we contribute to redressing the ills of the past regime and poverty in Africa.

The beautiful handcrafted range covers a wide variety of fabrics, kitchen accessories, scatter cushions, curtaining, upholstery and table linen including: tablecloths, table runners, serviettes, placemats, aprons, oven gloves, tea towels, shopping bucket bags, sling bags, cushion covers, fabric storage bags and purses.

I think for me the most exciting part of the business lies in the design and product development leading to a quality product truly appreciated by our loyal customers. We produce everything ourselves and we are 100% Proudly South African. Please browse through our website and take advantage of the specials we have at present. I would also like to thank all our customers for supporting us so loyally, without you there would be no business.

Regards
CAROLE-SIGNATURE
