Some of you might have noticed, we have very quietly had a logo change. It happened a few months ago, and we couldn’t be happier! To be honest, we really love both logos, our first represents something quite different to what we are now. It was perfect at the time, but as we  evolve and adapt, so too does our logo. As every small business owner knows, you very seldom end up doing exactly what you started out doing! The pincushion has been hand drawn with stitches by Leila, which is just perfect don’t you think? .

HAND DRAWN WITH STITCHES Charcoal protea wreath hand towel on hemp fabric. This is one of our favourites this season - we use all our products and love testing out new fabrics, and hemp is a winner! It’s a heavier weight than our cotton, and washes lovely and soft. And the best thing about it is that it is sustainable and uses a lot less water, than cotton, in production. It’s all about making conscious choices

Dropped this protea cushion off at Art @ 39 Long in Groot Brak Rivier on the Garden Route yesterday, and it sold not even half an hour after I left! Not that we need an excuse to visit , it’s a real oasis of beautiful art and carefully selected crafts. We will be restocking with more protea and aloe cushions over the next few weeks

We love the fact that when you place an order with us, it means you have chosen our product, carefully selected from hundreds and hundreds of possibilities! We are a small business, and without your support we would not be where we are today. So, as a thank you, we wrap your order as if we are wrapping a gift, because seriously, isn’t it the best thing to unwrap a gift?

Hello to all our new followers! We thought it’s just polite to introduce ourselves. We are threads that bind us, sisters, Emma and Leila. We both moved back to South Africa 3 years ago; Leila from Sydney, and I from London. It was a big move and a huge change in so many ways for us. Having your own business is not an easy path, but I would say it is the most rewarding! 
The protea that we use so often is hugely significant to us - it is a celebration of our experience of being home. Home is home, and we have Africa in our blood #threadsthatbindus #dowhatyoulovelovewhatyoudo #thisiswhoweare .

When life gets a bit crazy busy, we have a tendency to focus on the immediate, the small things, the what-needs-to-happen-today things. It’s good to stop and remind ourselves to look up, zoom out, look at the bigger picture, because more often than not it’s a way better view! Happy Wednesday lovelies! We’ve got an exciting busy week ahead of us, it’s the first day of Festive Ideas Market at the Simondium Country Lodge (on the R45) 24-28th OCT, then the @theethicalmarket opens in JHB on Thursday night @convoyshop at the @bamboolifestylecentre in Melville 25-28 OCT, and we’ll be @thelawnsmarket on Sunday 28 OCT. Whew!! Please come and see us at any one of these amazing venues, although we won’t be in Jozi for really this time, we’ll be there in spirit!! Ps: the cushion pictured will be available at THEM in JHB - be quick though, it’s one of a kind! #threadsthatbindus #dowhatyoulovelovewhatyoudo #lookatthebiggerpicture .

LET THE BEAUTY OF WHAT YOU LOVE BE WHAT YOU DO~Rumi “My decision to come back to South Africa after 16 years away was very much a heart decision.
