Biggie Best is synonymous with style and quality decor and that’s why we’re so happy that you can now shop their products at Volpes stores. Between Biggie Best and Volpes you can add that much-needed flair to your home – from linen, bedding and curtains to furniture, accessories and fabrics, they have you covered.

Love jewellery

We’ve found the most beautiful, feminine wearable treasures that are designed and made locally, with love. The Makery’s design duo, Heidi Gresty and Jacquie Myburgh Chemaly creates beaded heartstring necklaces, wrap bracelets and earrings, all with a contemporary touch in eye-catching colours … Gorgeous and affordable, what more can we ask for?!

Love bags and accessories

Fun and fabulous, yes, we’re talking about Lou Harvey. From bags (for the beach, your laptop, cosmetics, stationery or school lunch) to towels, backpacks and aprons for kids … the list is endless! With bright, quirky, colourful patterns and designs, no wonder everyone wants to get their hands on some Lou Harvey apparel.

Love tableware and linen

Breathe new life into your dull dinner table with the exquisite KeniKen fabrics and table linen collection. This neutral handprinted range features the indigenous floral kingdom of the Cape and includes napkins, table runners, tablecloths and tea towels. Purses, wine carriers and lovely soft pots are also part of this must-have artistic collection.

Love gin

Cheers to summer with the refreshing and delicious Bloedlemoen Gin! Made from the luscious Tarocco Blood Orange, with hints of orange peel, nutmeg, liquorice, cardamom and coriander (just to name a few!) we can understand why this award-winning Gin is such a huge favourite. Serve this tipple with a slice of orange (fresh or dried) and a cinnamon stick.

Love non-alcoholic

We give you Abstinence – a great grown-up non-alcoholic option for those that don’t feel like drinking. Each Abstinence spirit variant has an indigenous hero ingredient that is unmistakably South African. The Cape Citrus variant has Buchu and Western Cape Citrus at its core, the Cape Spice variant captures a medley of spices and Honeybush and the newest addition to the range, Cape Fynbos, showcases Rose Geranium. Serve with tonic, lemon peel and fresh berries.

Love talent

Toss aside the idea that interior decorators are only for the rich and famous or those with so much money that they don’t know what to do with it all. Interior stylist and owner of Studio Cailin, Cailin Wandrag, will help you plan, organise and coordinate your space and stretch your budget without compromising on quality or style.
