CAPE LOOMS

HAND WEAVING TRADITIONAL FLAT-WEAVE RUGS IN MOHAIR AND WOOL

CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA

Preserving and enhancing long established skills through a creative endeavour that is at once local and of an international standard.We bring our women weavers together, to hone their craft and develop an autonomous skill set – enabling them to financially support their families whilst keeping a heritage craft alive. 

South Africa is the largest Mohair producer in the world, and our fibres come directly from the farms surrounding the weaving workshops – creating a successful vertically integrated cooperative. We have a range of looms available to us, including the largest hand weaving looms in Africa. Our fibres of wool and mohair are blended and spun in our own workshops.  Blending qualities during the spinning process creates depth of texture that allow the fibres to sing in juxtaposition to one another.  The fibres can all be hand dyed in small batches to ensure a perfect saturation and colour match. We have chosen 18 wonderful hues as part of our collection however we can also match to a colour sample.
