In South Africa we are celebrating Heritage Day and I thought what better way to share heritage than through handmade and craft. The above creative and crafted items are not only South African, but made in Durban...heritage indeed! We are making new history in South African daily and shaping our creativity - these items are a few of my favourites at the moment and make me proud to live in Durban.
1 > Freshly Found Sari Headscarf: My poolside accessory this Summer for sure.
2 > Token Bowls: The colours, the smooth textures and the fine handcrafting are only a few reasons to fall in love with Carla's work. The perfect accompaniment to an alfresco lunch.
3 > Becca Blair Designs: I am a sucker for a good cosmetics bag and this one has a hint of vintage, but is super practical too.
4 > Geometric Simplicity: Earrings by Nicky Savage - clean lines and a strong simplicity that is so aesthetically pleasing.
5 > Time by Andy Cartwright: I will hang this in my home - any day!
6 > 031 Love by Demode : It think these key rings make a great gift or act a a reminder of our city.
7 > Sk8Shades: More Summer perfection! I met Dave who creates these out of old skateboards at the last I heart Market and really loved hearing the creative process.
8 > Blooming: Marike du Plessis is fairly new to Durban, but she is already showing off her great eye for design. Find her stationery at I heart Market.
