Nope, the title of this post is not a description of the contents of my lunchbox, these are the names of local shops that have recently started stocking Skinny laMinx teatowels. First up, the fabulously glam O.live, which has just opened a new store down at the newly revitalised bottom end of Kloof Street. O.live has taken some of my more restrained colours.Don’t they look nice here?
And last week, my studio turned into a bit of a factory as I packaged up a large order into three boxes for the Moyo stores in Stellenbosch, Johannesburg and Durban.
It’s funny – I feel like I’ve done things backwards: starting out by supplying far-off stores like Threepotatofour before approaching shops in my own neighbourhood. But although it’s taken a while and a roundabout route, I’m thrilled to finally be going local!
