How we began

Heather Moore’s simple, clean pattern designs and unusual colour palette are inspired by the beauty of everyday things, her love of midcentury style and a dose of African chic.

In 2008 she started screenprinting her patterns onto fabric, just for fun. Next thing, her hobby had become a business called Skinny laMinx, and the things she’d designed could be found in stores & homes around the globe.

But of course, there’s a bit more to the story:

Our studio

The Skinny laMinx production studio is where we cut and stitch our textiles into beautiful homewares, and send them all around the world.

You’re welcome to visit our studio showroom. Find us under the stripey yellow awning at 16a Buiten Street in central Cape Town.

The ethics of style

Our business has grown and changed, but our values are the same as ever.  In fact, we think our growth has a lot to do with caring about excellence, generosity, creativity and fun, while doing our best to treat people and the planet right.

Thank you for your fabulous customer service!

Why ‘Skinny laMinx’?

If Skinny laMinx is a nickname for Heather’s skinny little Siamese cat… then why is the business logo a bird?
