Dispatches from South Africa

Contributor post by Sara Trickett of itswhatiminto

Hello from Durban, South Africa! My name is Sara Trickett, I am the editor of itswhatiminto. We're a collaborative website focused on local design, interiors, culture and fashion. We are all about original content created by our 7 contributing editors from around South Africa. For my first post I thought I would introduce you to a few of our favorite South African furniture, product and fabric designers. Contemporary designs in an African context. Enjoy!
