Collaboration Editorial

Creativity thrives on collaboration, and that is how this month's They're Wonted Editorial came to life.                             When we first met Debby Van Der Veer from Blandat earlier this year, we were instantly drawn to her intense energy and tenacity towards her creations. Debby's fabrics erupt in an amalgamation of colours, patterns and techniques, all of which thrive in every environment in which they come to live. Debby's main focus is on creating the textiles themselves, what you choose to create from them is up to your own imagination. I have seen these works of art, as chairs and wallpaper, as cushions and kimonos, as shoes and even bags, there truly are no limitations. To see more of Blandat's work visit her Website and...

Akedo Event

Driving along the tree-lined streets of Forest Town, on the way to the 'Akedo' event,  the sun piercing through the trees, I know I’m lucky to live in this city. Johannesburg to me is an undervalued treasure filled with spirited people and staggering places.   It’s a mild winter Saturday and the city is abuzz with weekend happiness, arriving at the venue, it is seemingly unassuming from the outside. Upon entry, you realise that it is anything but, a beautifully converted architect's home filled with light and a true creatives milieu. Stacked glass doors lead from the striking living room, onto a manicured garden. Every inch of this space takes you to another place, it is curated down to the last detail,...
