A classic is a classic is a classic 


We get requests for our beautiful leather fringe bags, almost on a weekly basis. The soft nappa leather has recently been very hard to come by, but we managed to lay our hands on a precious stash of black leather. So in the shop right now - five black leather fringe bags!

If you go up to the Shop on Top... 




... you would see a beautiful Mielie seat adorned with some of the fynbos flowers that one can see on Table Mountain. The charming gift store is housed in a magnificent granite building close to the cable station on top of Table Mountain. It's just had a revamp, so pop in and take a stylish seat!

Exotic Mielie destinations 

One of the best things about Mielie is that our general and geographical knowledge and just keeps on improving as our products get posted to exotic sounding places. Like Powys, in Wales, the town that boasts the happiest people in Britain. As you can see Powys is a magical place in winter, but in spring it transforms to the greenest valley you've ever seen. Maybe this Flower Field Mielie bag will nudge spring along?

And then there were four 


Toes curled and whoops of delight were, well, whooped when these beauties arrived today. Zanele, Manyawuza, Sentiwe, you truly are master crafters. These four yoga cushions are on their way to Aix en Provence, where they will be gracing the lovely Isabelle's yoga studio.

Say "bonjour" to many waves of grey and black 


We've been having a trs magnifique time with several lovely French clients lately. This custom chair was specially woven by Manyawuza for Mathilde, whose charming mum, Chantale, made it all happen. The design is a classic japanese woodcut design called Qinghai. I think Manyawuza's interpretation is extraordinaire, n'est-ce pas?

Happiness = beautiful work 

We're currently working on a set of four yoga bolster cushions for a Isabelle, a wonderful client from France. The weavers quickly nicknamed them "sausage cushions"! Each cushion will have a different accent colour, but the designs will all be similar. I can't wait to see them all!
