I first stumbled on the wonderful designs by the Durban based Shaw Sisters on one of my favourite local blogs Coelho Culture. Shaw sisters was founded in 2010 by sisters Angela Shaw of Koop Design and Janet Shaw of The Zulu Beadwork Project. Angela tells us a bit more.
“We love handmade product and our vision is to identify, source and develop quality crafted goods for South African and international markets.
The aim is to have fun, traveling internationally to find original materials and suppliers and also working closely with selected South African crafters to create inspiring and beautiful goods.
Together we create seasonal stories that become our script for finding, developing and presenting our ranges every 6 months.
The label was launched in August 2010 at SARCDA.
In March 2011 Shaw Sisters was awarded Most Innovative Product for our Folded Book light at the Durban Decorex Trends and Tastes show.”
For more gorgeous products have a look at their website.
