Happily ever after.

The time has come: The South is Blooming is closing down.

After seven years in business, it’s time for new adventures.  As of 1 February 2018, we’ll be ceasing operations.

Thank you so much to all our suppliers, customers and retailers for your support over the years. It has been very special to work with you all.

If you’re interested in hunting down South African design or craft, we would like to suggest you try the following sources:

Irene at CraftsCurator.

Showroom Nuweland, based in Friesland, NL.

For Skinny laMinx in Europe, please contact Barbara at Haus 269.

For basketwork try GoneArty.

The South will keep on blooming – we highly recommend visiting South Africa yourself to experience the magic of the place.

Go well.





Minima is a young Cape Town based lighting and furniture studio whom we’ve recently started working with. We love their beautiful digitally crafted timber lights which are put together by ingeniously simple compression and locking mechanisms. We assist with getting Minima lights into European retailers and customers’ homes.

Please contact us if you’re interested in stocking or buying Minima products.

Pop-up shops

We have run several short and long-term pop-up stores in the Netherlands, including the very successful long-running Eco Pop-up Store in Groningen, and an official World Design Capital satellite project in Amsterdam.
