Living in the Wild

18 Jun

Indigi Designs: Natalie du Toit, former Creative Director of Fundi Light & Living, founded housewares line Indigi Designs earlier this year as a way to translate the traditional colors and patterns from her native South Africa into a contemporary line for international homes. She says it’s easy to find inspiration in Cape Town, as the beauty and energy of its indigenous cultures is evident everywhere. Consequently, the collection is a sophisticated interpretation of that vibrancy. An equally compelling selling point is the craftsmanship with which it is assembled – from shweshwe textiles to wire baskets, each item is handmade in South Africa with remarkable attention to detail and respect for natural materials.
