Like tens of thousands of others, we headed to the Design Indaba Expo last weekend to peruse the vast locally- and most often hand-made wares on show. The big number of visitors provides excellent exposure for South African/African designers and makers but can be quite challenging to navigate. And so, here are our pic(k)s of the 2014 Expo for a peaceful online browsing experience. Follow the links for more info about the designers; more of what they make; and how to make those things yours.
Africa Is Now
Taking a cue from the Africa Is Now exhibition at the Expo, these are the brands using their homeland as their primary inspiration.
The Emerging Creatives section at the Expo is a list of Design Indaba’s ones-to-watch. These are ours.
The ooh-aah of the Expo.
