• So i’ve been watching the hype about The Shoestring Collective build on Twitter and Facebook and i’m so glad i popped in yesterday to see for myself – it’s great!

    This pop up shop concept is the brainchild of local designers Sera Holland and Leila Badsha and it’s a beaut!

    Featuring products and designs by 16 South African design talents, this pop up space is in the Gardens Centre and will be running for a month (hopefully longer, i say). I spotted so many lust haves and once again i was blown away by the talent we have in South Africa – from detailed jewellery by Famke and Anomali to one-of-a-kind ceramics by Tamarillo, fashion by Good and Coppelia, fabrics and furniture by Handmade by Me and a host of quirky collectables and  I Want That’s in between.

      […] actually like enough to go into business with, but we’ve had lots of practice, and we even ran The Shoestring (Collective) together. We’ve seen each other’s dark side, so we know how to handle each […]
