Textile designer, Luhandra Kirby established the brand in 2014. She started off by screen printing her own fabrics in her home studio to now offering a range of fabrics sold by the running meter.
They offer a wide range of products printed on a natural base cloth which is locally sourced in the KZN, Midlands. Their product range consists of upholstery, soft furnishings, accessories and table decor. They strive to create high end products which are affordable for clients on a budget.
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.

KEEP THINGS TIDY
Kids rooms are full to the brim with toys, blankets, books and more. Keeping things neat is no easy task, but I love the idea of these large fabric storage baskets to do the job.
Large enough to hold your babes favourite things but small enough not to get in the way.
Available in a variety of colours to match your nursery or playroom perfectly.
The large basket is lined in a cream fabric.
