A look back at 2015

Since we close our office on 11th December, 2015 I don't think it is too soon to look back.  It has been a busy year for us - we have completed some of the largest individual carpets that we have ever been commissioned to weave, and have seen a real demand for authentic, ethical woven fabrics. 

We worked with some prestigious international design studios and have supplied our carpets to far flung locations including Chianti and Kuwait.   We also tried mohair wall covering for the first time (we're awaiting the results) and have provided fabrics from top to bottom for a private lodge in Namibia (blankets, carpets and curtains.) 

Natalie Comberly began her year as an intern with us, she went on to design a range of clothing sponsored by Mohair South Africa and achieved first place in the resulting awards.  We also hosted Misha Kahn a New York artist who came to explore craft in Swaziland.  We continue to work with SWIFT (Swaziland Fair Trade) and used the fascinating network of creative and entrepreneurial women to broaden our doctor talking to couple about types of genital warts ohnerezeptfreikauf.com doctor talking to couple about types of genital warts ohnerezeptfreikauf.com horizons and learn from their experiences.  More especially, Ariela Suster from the Sequence Collection in Salvador. 

We are also very sad to say good bye to Jane Dlamini who has been weaving for more than 40 years, she has decided to hang up her shuttle and represents the last of a class of weavers who have retired over the last few years after long and dedicated service.  (More about Jane on another blog.)
 
We continue to offer a custom made product and weave and prepare our yarn in the same way as we have done for more than 65 years.
