Our thorough and professional approach to the design and hand-weaving processes has appeal both locally and around the world.
We create original designs, experiment with new weaves and mix different fibres for exciting effects and to create a range of textures.
We dye the materials onsite, creating beautiful colours and colour effects. We can match just about any colour required for custom pieces.
Whether it's spinning the yarn, dyeing, weaving it, and finishing it off to create the final product, all the work is done by hand.
Whilst the majority of our products are made from natural materials (eg: South African Mohair and Namibian Karakul Wool), we also weave with Polypropylene.
Our looms allow us to create fabrics from as narrow as 500 mm and we also create large-format custom rugs of up to nine metres in one piece.
We have three ranges available:
- Our top of the range, luxury 100% Mohair rugs
- Our middle of the range, great for family homes and medium wear areas in Mohair, and Wool
- Our practical and hard-wearing Polypropylene rugs, which are ideal for outdoor areas and high traffic zones.
When you are choosing a rug, answering the following questions will help guide you to the right product from our range:
- Where are you planning to place your rug?
- Is it a high or low traffic area?
- Are there animals or children to consider?
- Do you have a colour range and pattern in mind or decor theme you are working to which you’d like the rug to complement?
Our luxury rugs are all 100% Mohair which has been responsibly sourced from within South Africa. The fleece is handspun, hand-dyed, and then handwoven to create these beautiful rugs. The fibre is strong and resilient, lasting many, many years and yet feeling incredibly soft and cosy underfoot.
These rugs are ideal for living areas and bedrooms and make great statement pieces. Each of our luxury ranges has a different look and finish depending on the fleece and the dyeing and weaving process. These rugs are available in a range of colours and weaves including plain, flecked or stripes.
Acacia Pure Thick Lox Mohair Rug
Our Acacia rugs are handspun and handwoven from pure Thick Lox Mohair to create textured rugs that are extremely lustrous with a shiny finish. Lox Mohair retains the natural colouration of the Mohair, creating an interesting variation of colour in its natural form or when dyed.
Marula Pure Fine Mohair Lox Rug
Our Marula rugs are handwoven from finely handspun, carefully selected pure Lox Mohair. This fibre creates a thin and purposely uneven thread with a shiny finish. These rugs are extremely lustrous.

Each is hand-dyed and then handwoven to create these beautiful rugs. The fibre is strong and resilient, lasting many, many years and holds colours beautifully allowing for a vibrant look.
These rugs are ideal for family homes and medium wear areas especially in areas where they will be felt like bedrooms and play areas. These rugs are available in a range of rich colours and design effects including plain, flecked and stripes.

We offer them as either Fluffy (hand brushed to raise the fibres) or as a Boucle which has little curls all over.
