Don’t you love it when moms create brilliant things? That’s what Flore de Vries did with her company Shweet, a range of hats, books, games and accessories that are recognisably South African, and just wonderful.
All the products have an African theme, and are designed and hand made in Cape Town. They use ShweShwe fabric that is printed in the Eastern Cape, and use 100% recyclable paper in their books, and non-toxic soy-based ink for their printed products.
Have a look at some of the products – more can be found and bought on their site. Prices range from R99 for a notebook, around R150 for a game, and R250 for a hat. These make for great gifts for overseas friends and family, and I think the notebooks make brilliant corporate or event gifts.
