Food, Wine & Design Fair – Shaw Sisters? Koop? O koop! ja!


Koop? Shaw Sisters?  Well, this stall immediately drew my attention and caused a little chuckle, as  koop means buy in Afrikaans.  That is exactly what I wish that I could have done there. 

The lovely Shaw Sisters designed the clocks, recycled lights, dolls, folded flowers and bags (which can’t be seen from the picture). The recycled lights are just plain genius.

 They are made from the pages of books bought at charity shops.  The fact that  materials are recycled and charities supported, made me want  to ‘koop’ them as well.

Koop, is the label of Richard Stretton, started  in 1999.  With which he has won a Elle Decoration award. Impressive, ja.

 Koop’s ethos is “to produce buildings and products that are environmentally sensitive and energy efficient“.

In my humble opinion these really are  great examples of South African design. Well done, well done.
