WHY I LOVE THEM
Elle Kay has been on my watch list since I came across her pretty fabrics at the I Heart Market in Durban many years ago. Her products became popular favourites for gifting and before I knew it I had met Luhandra at a business workshop and got chatting.
A hard working and talented designer, Lu has grown her brand to something beautiful and unique with a specific focus on supporting local trade.
Her brand has been around for years and I think we can expect some exciting things from this beautiful store.
After taking a year to study Fashion Design in 2019/2020, Lu is now back on the scene and ready to get back to her passion. I can't wait to see more from this incredible creative.
FAVOURITE FINDS FROM THEIR LATEST COLLECTION
SIMPLE & STRIKING
These 55x55cm cushion covers are sure to brighten up your space. With 3 different colours to choose from, the Speck print is a beautiful botanical like print with its little leaf specks that run up and down, parallel to one another.
This is a personal favourite that I have loved from the Elle Kay collection for quite some time.
The cushion cover is printed on white 100% cotton with a linen look. The design is printed on both sides and features a lapped zip at the base of the cushion. Each cushion has a 1,5cm Oxford boarder. A printed Elle Kay Fabrics label is sewn in at the side of the cushion.
