Weave Got This
Handmade woven items for your home
The unique textures of woven materials have the ability to add a layer of depth to your space and can create an inviting sense of warmth into your home. From eye-catching light pendants to benches, baskets and more, we've found ways to weave these materials into your home with ease.
Tidy house, happy life? For those of us who are striving for clutter-free living spaces, but unsure where to store all your loose essentials, is always a challenge. Enter Baskiti’s Hanging Storage Baskets. Born from a personal problem in lockdown, to a solution for everyday essentials, Baskiti’s beautiful storage basket range is handwoven in Cape Town, using natural cane. With accessories like their linen basket Liners and the J-Hook Wall Hook for easy display, these Storage Baskets are as practical as they are elegant.
Weaving is one of the oldest surviving practises in the world with a history that dates back some 30 000 years. Celebrating these ancient crafting techniques, from multicoloured tassels to minimalist floor baskets, lampshades and ottomans to macramé hanging planters, Mia Mélange has woven-ware as diverse as the women whose own hands have lovingly coiled and stitched each — locally sourced 100% cotton — chord in place. The quality of their craftsmanship goes hand in hand with a sense of family that has been forged by this community-centric business. Whether you're into a neutral or colourful palette, any Mia Melange item will surely add some texture and soul to any room.
The Cotton Company
Just follow the thread of weaving’s history and you’ll always find it closely connected to the family unit. Madeleine Hugo of The Cotton Company knows this all too well. It was through a serendipitous road trip to the Turkish countryside that she met a family of authentic Turkish towel weavers whose hand-crafted technique went all the way down to hand-tying the fringes of each superbly durable, soft, and absorbent towel; a luxury she knew she needed to share with South Africa. Made of raw linen and pure Turkish cotton, the unique flat woven ‘Zeytin’ towel with its earthy olive-green stripe is among our favourites.
We love the versatility of a throw, they are perfect for decorative use, but even better for those chilly evenings.
After seeing how woven goods can add warmth and texture to your space, it's only natural that items like these will probably, slowly but surely weave their way into our home.
