4 Things I Heart
curated by Nadia van der Mescht
1. Elle Kay Fabrics (Floor Cushion)
“Perfect for some cosy entertaining”
Elle Kay is a local textile design company that designs bold, colourful, statement homeware textiles with a contemporary aesthetic. What we also love about their product is that everything is printed on a natural base cloth which is locally sourced in the Midlands, KZN! Swoon-worthy everything right here: Elle Kay
2. Julie Smith-Belton
“All women have a hint of chaos within.”
Visual artist, graphic designer and photographer are only a few of the things that describe Julie’s eclectic range of talents. From beautiful prints to handmade dolls: come discover her art and be inspired by the various different styles and techniques she uses to make every one of her creations completely unique.

3. Sharon Erichson Ceramics
“Delicately beautiful, the ideal objet d'art.”
Sharon Erichsen is a ceramics master and has managed to create pure magic working with porcelain. She is inspired by texture, pattern, colour and…...wait for it…...succulents! We’re totally obsessed with her range of porcelain rings. Stop by her stall this coming I Heart to check them out.
4. Woodnewz Platter
“Crusty bread, olives, cheese... snacks piled high for a happy night in.”
What sets Woodnewz apart from other wooden board manufacturers is that they handcraft every item with precision and exceptional care. When you buy Woodnewz, you know you’re buying quality that’s going to last you for years to come. We also love their bespoke furniture pieces, which you can check out on their Instagram: Woodnewz
Come and support all these local creators, makers, designers and entrepreneurs every first Saturday of the month on the lawns of Moses Mabhida Stadium. We look forward to seeing you there!
