NEW(s)…

It’s a new month and we have some new stockists, new products, and new projects going down…spring has sprung which means new beginnings, and so it’s out with the old and in with the new…or nearly anyways.

First off, we’re so excited to let you know about our latest stockist specially because the owner is one of my nearest and dearest and I couldn’t be prouder! Everyone in Cape Town you HAVE to visit THE GENERAL STORE on cnr Bree St and Riebeek St. The food is sensational while still healthy with lots of choice, and the coffee is one of the best in town! Don’t even get me started on the brownies. This gorgeous feature by VISI magazine says it all. Pics below also by Visi magazine.

We also shared a sneak peek during the last week of the first of our little nappy covers which we will be launching in a whole array of designs real soon. They turned out so cute we just couldn’t help but share this little pic with you.

Some of you might not know that we supply our fabrics to Saks Corner, one of our favourite local furniture shops in town. Here’s a snap they sent us last week to show us just how fantastic their chair covered in our Geometric Orange panama fabric turned out. Swoon.

And like we said, it’s out with the old and in with the new, so Handmade By Me is having the BIGGEST sale we have ever had with selected products marked down to HALF PRICE. We are sad to say good bye to some of our older designs but we need to make space for new ones, so we have added lots of cushion covers, aprons, lampshades, tea towels and a few other bits and pieces. View the full sale on display at SAM (South African Market) in Bree Street or take advantage online. Please note that the items on sale are only while stocks last.

some August media lovin…

We have been very lucky this last month with products being featured in all sorts of different magazines and blogs. We thought we might share our August media love with you here on our blog.

Not only was our newly launched Geometric Orange LUX Panama Cushion chosen as one of 100 Beautiful Things in association with Visi at 100% Design, it was also selected as part of The 100% Design Edit in the Sunday Times Home Weekly section.

House & leisure magazine think our quirky Shweshwe Shields in Pink tea towel is a great way to introduce pattern into your kitchen. We couldn’t agree more!

Living and Loving magazine looked at choosing which colours will work best for your nursey and decided our Orange Squares cushion cover would be a perfect match.  “While red is a fiery, volatile and energetic colour that should only be used as an accent colour in small amounts in a nursery, orange offers a similar look that’s friendly, welcoming and vibrant.”
