If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, here’s the big news. I’ve been assisting on the launch of Curated.Africa online store; your source for quality-crafted products made in Africa.
This incredible project is the brainchild of Societi Bistro owner Peter Weetman and his business partner Johan van Heerden. Together, they are taking Africa to the world. Sounds insanely yummy, doesn’t it? Well, it is.
The team’s vision is to empower African-based entrepreneurs whose products celebrate our heritage. Their focus is on curating high-quality items that are ethically produced and in harmony with the environment. Think jewellery, ceramics, decor and homeware. Peter and Johan have prided themselves on celebrating the unique nature of handmade items and are proud to offer discerning buyers something special. Bespoke products made to order will also be on offer, guaranteed to be well worth the wait.
Currently, many of the items are produced in or around Cape Town. As the business expands and the team further explore our beautiful continent, you’ll be seeing even more exquisite treasures and crafts.
So where do I fit in?
I had been invited by Peter and Johan to curate a capsule collection of products which I love. My personally curated collection goes live on Sunday 7 October and I hope you love it too.
In it, you’ll find the most delicious candles and a lust-have beach tote by Cape Island, some chic Mors Design stationery and bags made from recycled tyres, Waif jewellery which has already been featured on Vogue Italia and loads more. Ohh, my favourite menswear brand Zeitgeist, is there and a cute kiddies accessory range launches real soon. Yikes!, I’m not ready yet but I promise to move heaven and earth to get it all up in time.
As a launch gift, you’ll get R150 off your first purchase of R850 or more.
Use the discount code Clouds Drummond to qualify. Offer valid from 7 to 14 October 2018.
See, I told you this was insanely yummy.
Dear Peter and Johan, thank you for inviting me to sit on your side of the boardroom table. I’m humbled and honoured.
love & light
