The M+M Collection is a merino wool and leather range by Chloe Townsend of Missibaba and Anna Verloren van Themaat of Mevrou.
Chloe and Anna decided to keep the range of handbags, scarves, cushions and vessels bold and graphic using off-white and black in the textile and tan leather and dark chocolate cotton for finishing. Each product is available in Aztec, Arrows or Checkered pattern.
Anna developed a felted textile for the products made from 100% hand knitted Merino yarn that then gets felted, giving it a unique and graphic look that cannot be achieved using better known felting techniques. Chloe then transformed the textile into luxury products using her experience as an established handbag designer. She constructed and finished each item with the finest detail using Namibian leather and 100% cotton.
All products are made from 100% Merino wool that has been dyed and spun in Worcester, hand-knitted stitches made in Riverlands, felted in Vredehoek and finally finished in Woodstock using Namibian leather.
The beautiful products can be bought directly from Anna – firstname.lastname@example.org – or from the Missibaba store in Bree street Cape Town from July.
