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.

ANAIS PILLOWCASE

R495

FUN AND FAB
50cm x 50cm

This is a slight departure from Spases' more typical mono styles. It would be a wonderful addition to liven and freshen up any living space. Perfect for a teenager's bedroom and your living room alike! 

 

The fabric used is a vintage baule cloth. This cloth hails from the Ivory Coast and was traditionally worn by communities to celebrate special events and cultural gatherings.

Each piece is individually made by hand and the colourants used are of natural origin.

MILLIE PILLOWCASE

A FIRM FAVOURITE

50cm x 50cm

The bold pop of colour in The Millie Pillowcase is somehow bright and neutral at the same time. This pillowcase is a versatile piece that could either take centre stage in your home or in a mix of scatters to complement your existing decor. you can change up your look depending on what your pair it with and how your style it.

 

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.

ON MY WISHLIST
50cm x 50cm

I absolutely adore this dark pillowcase.

It would look striking contrasted with a white sofa or occasional chair. The texture creates interest and warmth.

This beauty would look right at home in a boho-luxe setting as much as it would in a sleek and modern interior.
