ABOUT

The coming together for this passion project was such a natural occurrence for sisters, Germaine and Jocelyn. 

Germaine founded Spases in 2010, back then it was a blog that housed her creative thoughts when it came to all things interiors. This has been a hobby of sorts for the past 10 years and she has always had an itch to create something.

Jocelyn on the other hand has been in the textile industry for years and has experience in the nuts and bolts of textile manufacturing, trend forecasting and the back end of the fashion world. With an understanding of fabric construction and quality, it was a no brainer!

Spases has a real appreciation for our African heritage with a minimal twist. This collection of products is their love for all things natural, minimal and African.

WHY I LOVE THEM

I have been following Spases for a while. Their look, feel and style aligns perfectly with my minimalist aesthetic and I love that they have an African feel that is still modern and contemporary.

Their decor items, colour choices and textures could fit seamlessly into my own home which is probably why it was love at first sight.

This sister duo plays by their own rules, inspiring beautiful, timeless decor that is kept simple and made with love.

NAHLA PILLOWCASE

R795

IN MY HOME
90cm x 40cm lumber

This pillowcase is way bigger than you would expect. I know, because it is sitting pretty on our guest bed. A beautiful focal point in the room!

 

It really is a generously large and special piece. It can easily sit alone on a bed or it can be paired with two or more square Malian mud cushions.

 

Although it has no pattern, it is anything but plain or boring. The pom poms are fun features and the 100% natural wool is super soft to the touch. 

BENI BOUJAAD COVER

R895

A FIRM FAVOURITE

50cm x 50cm

 

These Moroccan Boujaad covers hail from the Atlas Mountains. In these mountains are Berber villages that produce the most beautiful traditional rugs. These covers have been repurposed into cushions from those vintage rugs.

 

As each piece is handmade, rare and unique they are available only as singles. They also may have minor variations and imperfections. However, I'm sure you'd agree, it only adds to their beauty and charm.

I'll be surprised if this cover stays in stock! If it is sold out, don't despair, there are a few similar to it on the Spases website.

LOUIS PILLOWCASE

​​​

R695

ON MY WISHLIST

50cm x 50cm

This super versatile pillowcase can be used in virtually any room in the house and matched with virtually any colour theme.

 

The texture adds warmth and interest, especially if paired with a pillowcase in a contrasting fabrication.

The fabric used is Malian mud cloth. It is a handmade Malian cotton fabric, traditionally dyed with fermented mud. Made of cotton strips woven by men and stitched together to form a larger cloth. Women then decorate the cloth with mud from the seasonal rivers in Mali. This cloth has become a symbol of Malian culture.
