another Ramona

A girl came into the shop on Saturday and introduced herself as Ramona which is a rare thing.  I was pretty chuffed to overhear her inform her friends as they wandered around that she was quite enamoured by the shop - I'm glad she approved!

The sumptious runner (above) is one of the newest designs by World Weave and comes in several sizes.  Skinny laMinx is the latest designer to grace the tienda shelves with cushion covers and napkins.  The colts design is inspired by ancient San rock paintings in the Cederberg mountains about 300km north of Cape Town where Heather lives.

what I admire most about textile designer Julie Paterson (founder of Cloth Fabric) is her aptitude for creating such stunning surface designs with a humble paper stencil.  Reminds us that understated can be beautiful too.
