The ancient art of macramé

The origin of macramé stretches back thousands of years … it’s an ancient, timeless art that, over the past year or so, has come back into fashion. We recently discovered Tide, a local business that creates bespoke, beautiful macramé art. Being hand-crafted, pieces are all one of a kind, each more lovely and intricate than the one before. Artist Gabi Morrell-Smith travels to the coast to collect the shells and driftwood she uses in her pieces … work of art wall hangings, pretty garlands, shopping or beach bags. We’re obsessed with their plant hangers and are equally besotted with their little jar covers.

Great, great gifts (if you’re like us and already thinking Christmas). Tide has a really fabulous range, but if you want something specific, chat to Gabi and she’ll make up a custom piece for you. Prices from R200 up to around R750.
