Utique is the latest local design online shop to pop up in South Africa. It was literally launched last night and handmade by me was invited to display some work and celebrate in the beginning of something very exciting!
“Utique is all about showcasing the very best of South African creative talent by carefully selecting products from local designers, artists and small businesses.
We are passionate about finding and sharing those special pieces that customers assume are imported one-offs, never to be found again, but are actually produced in a tiny studio up the road. We’ve made it our mission to seek out these hidden gems of design talent and bring them together in a curated space that is beautiful, inspiring, and simple to shop
All our suppliers are carefully chosen for their creativity, innovative style and quality, ensuring that we only promote the very best local talent. From jewellery and ceramics to furniture and art, Utique is the place to indulge your sense for inspiring local designs”
Have a look yourselves, there are some amazing pieces to be found! And there are also some lovely mixed collections to browse if you are looking for gift ideas or you just want to have a snoop. I want one of those sootcookie ceramics real bad!!!
Here’s a link to their site…
And here’s handmade by me’s space at the launch! Note my lovely bunting which has been keeping me very busy these last few nights! What a fantastic way to use up all the scraps! After the lovely reaction to it last night I think I might add it to my product list : )
