We love the idea of breathing life and value into objects which were previously untouched. We believe that perfection is nature, and have therefore developed a love for incorporating natural elements into contemporary settings, including many homes and businesses throughout South Africa.


Our inspiration comes from the unique and natural beauty that is found from across Southern Africa. Although most of our stock is sourced and shaped in South Africa, our pieces may originate from across the border. All of our pieces are 100% hand made, exclusively African, and are truly one of a kind.
