This year, Mohair South Africa teamed up with local furniture and product design company Dark Horse to design a custom couch using their incredible fabric. The result is the Shear Couch which was displayed at Design Indaba Expo and features in this Mohair South Africa video by Stage 5 Films.
Mohair South Africa is a non-profit organisation that aims to enhance the production and consumption of Cape Mohair. Mohair is the hair of an angora goat which is known internationally as one of the most sought-after sustainable natural resources. Mohair South Africa currently produces 50% of the world’s Mohair production. They are known for their consistent vision of ‘continuous improvement, progressive attitudes and financial discipline.’
Dark Horse was founded by two interior designers and architects, Lise du Plessis and Jarrad Nelson. Their passion for design resulted in a brand that designs tailored accessories, furniture and homeware, all intricately detailed and crafted with local and genuine resources.
Both internationally known, the brand and organisation came together to create a strong and captivating piece for Design Indaba.
