I ❤ South African Talent : Skinny LaMinx and Jesse

I've been following two amazing South African designers for a number of years now and figured that it's high time that I add them to this blog.

Hand printed fabric - Hearts by Jezzeprints

Jesse Breytenbach of Jezzeprints makes some of the most loveliest prints I have seen.
She has illustrated for Cambridge University Press and even has her own graphic novel titled, 'I don't like chocolate.'

'Herds handbag' by Skinny Laminx

Heather Moore of Skinny Laminx, creates the most inspired items. My favourite items have to be the 'I wish we had IKEA' set, especially since I love IKEA myself :)
Her works have appeared in different stores around the world and in many different magazines.
Heather also edits and maintains the Elle Decoration Blog.
Skinny Laminx will be featured at this weekend's Design Indaba Expo in Cape Town (27-28 February 2010) along with many other talented designers at the Threadcount collective stand.

Do visit them if you are in the area :)
