(Cyclopia spp) A natural product from the Fynbos Biome. Where two oceans meet, people gather to embrace this unique caffeine and preservative free tea – a product kissed by cool sea breezes from the southernmost tip of Africa. It is harvested and processed on and distributed from the Agulhas Plain, an area acknowledged as a biodiversity hotspot.
How it's made: [ The Art of Tea ]
In 1994, the first honeybush tea plants were established on our farm on the southern slopes of the Bredasdorp Mountains. It started off with a parent plantation of a few honeybush tea species and selections (Cyclopia spp.), as very little was known at that stage about their ecological preferences and general usefulness to the tea industry. At present, we have 30 hectares of prime honeybush tea, emanating from seeds harvested in the initial mother block. Following a careful breeding programme, we continually selected the plants most desirable from the view point of growth habit, which... More

WHY PURE MERINO WOOL?
– Bio-degradable – naturally decomposes releasing nutrients back into the earth.
– Naturally elastic and breathable
– Gently stretches to fit and then returns to original shape. – Resistant to odours and harmful U-V rays. Stretching across Southern Africa is a vast semi-desert known as the Karoo, a mythical land of stark beauty, where life is slow and serene; where people and nature appreciate and embrace each other. Summers are hot and dry with Karoo winters bitterly cold. Rainfall is minimal but intense – all inhabitants in this climate need to understand protection and sharing. Ancient tribes roamed the plains of the Karoo, surviving on only what they could harvest from their hallowed surroundings, leaving enough for the land and others to share. In this tradition, women of Southern Africa have drawn on the fine natural wool shorn from the Karoo’s largest inhabitant, the humble sheep, to knit blankets with which to keep young children warm. The sheep will continue to... More
Over time thousands of people made pipes, following strict guidelines with both shape and the simplicity of a good pipe. I moved away from those guidelines some 20 years ago, and created a system pipe, now loved by more than 20 000 people over the years… not a whole lot, but enough considering the feedback I get. I focused on the inside of a pipe, the airflow, the moisture content and of course heat, creating a pipe that smokes dry, cool, and of course airflow that smokes as easy as breathing. Now, I can add the cost saving feature, where you will be able to smoke right down to the last dottle even if you are a novice to the world of smoking a pipe because of the perfect placing of the smoke hole. This I call a bottomless feature.
First I created the Universal System, giving you a spit collector that can be removed for easy cleaning, and a sump to keep the moisture from the tobacco to mix with spit and give you that dry smoke without the bitter bite you always... More

Karoo beard co. ( karoo baard olie ) is handcrafted beard products from south africa and the heart of the karoo we make high quality oils and products for the man with a beard or mustache.
It is a totally hands-on affair. From the collection of leaves, seedpods and ferns, to the laying out of the fabric on the grass and the designing – there is a distinct lack of the machinery usually associated with fabric production, and every single piece is a one-off creation
Pru and her team work only on the hottest days, with no wind to disturb the leaves. The special light-sensitive dyes do their work over a couple of hours, and only when the leaves are removed can one see how the sunlight has affected the fabric.
For this reason, each fabric is unique and as such can never be reproduced exactly. That is what makes Langa Lapu so very special.
Langa Lapu is Xhosa for "sun cloth", and we aim to bring some of our abundant African sunshine and vibrant colour into your homes. Our exotic and colourful fabrics are handmade in South Africa combining our lush tropical vegetation with the African element of earth, wind, fire and water.

Every generation of the Louw family has been involved in the making of cold water soap. As long as I can remember, my grandmother “Ouma Duifie”, made this soap on our Elandsoog farm based in the Middelpos district. Every now and then, she would make the old fashioned boiled soap. She taught my mother Johanna Louw, also know as “Ouma Hanna” finer art of making cold water soap.
Since October 2007, Alida Taljaard has taken over and with the close supervision of Ouma Hanna, has created her very own cold water soap. In August 2009, Alida’s twin sister, Christine Bothma, has joined the “LOUW soap-making team” after refining the soap-making skill herself.

No two are cut alike. Individually hand-cut and painted wooden puzzles. These puzzles are not machine cut so no two is exactly the same. This brings a very interesting challenge to the child if presented with two of the same puzzles.
Rethink Bags was born in late 2017 for two main reasons. The first is a deep desire to assist young women who have not had OPPORTUNITIES to finish school and study further. There is a wealth of talent and passion lying wasted on farms and in towns all around South Africa and further afield. By sharing one of my PASSIONS – sewing and using it to create beautiful, functional re-usable shopping bags – we are addressing the second reason for the creation of Rethink Bags, that of PLASTIC POLLUTION.

All is beautifully made and unique. After a really loooooong break, and a huge continental move, I am excited to re-open with my trusted favorites, and introduce you to the wonderful world of SHWESHWE !!!
A little bit about why I love to use SHWESHWE fabric:
First of all, because it is stunningly beautiful, 100% cotton and totally unique, there is nothing like it, the world over. Secondly, I grew up in the town where Shweshwe fabric is produced, and when I was studying textiles, dressmaking and fashion design, because the factory was close-by, I went there often, and it just became a part of my life.
Da Gama Textiles is perhaps the only known producer of traditional Indigo Dyed Discharge Printed Fabric in the world. It is unique to this company in South Africa. The process for producing Three Cats Shweshwe is still done traditionally, whereby fabric is fed through copper rollers which have... More
