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.

MUSTARD PENCIL BAG
BACK TO SCHOOL
You don't really have to be a child to have this one. I love a pretty pencil bag myself, but who doesn't love stationery?!
This one has water resistant lining and was created to reduce the amount of waste generated during product development.
Now that's what I like to hear!
Bright, unique and most likely different to what the other kids at school have, your little one's pencil bag will be hard to lose (especially in this beautiful mustard!)
School never looked so pretty!
These bags are made from the off cuts generated during the cushion making progress.
The bags feature a white 20cm metal zip with a printed Elle Kay Fabrics tag sewn into the side seam.
