Product crush: Zana || Coin Purse

As most of you may know I am one of the designers at Zana. This month marks my one year with the team and seriously it is and has been my dream job! I am so grateful to have found and to be able to do what I love everyday.

We have done SO much in the last year but one of my very favourite projects and one we are all so proud of is our new coin purses which launched this past week.

Zana Coin purses - Melissa Louise

They are the perfect combo of fun and luxury! They are double sided, textiles on the front and genuine leather on the back. The variety of new Zana original textiles are bound to appeal to many and if you didn’t have enough to choose from each design comes in two shapes, round bottom and rectangle. eeeeek.

Love Milo launches a new range and man I am excited

I have always crushed on Love Milo , their designs are simply elegant and I absoultley love the cross use of materials and textures. Excitingly , last week Nikki and I attended the launch of Love Milo’s botanical range at Nap Living in Cape Quarter.

 My dear friend Nikki & I.

Nap is TO.DIE.FOR ! It was my first time there and I cannot believe what I have been missing out on… They stock a beautiful array of products from linen and glassware to furniture and so much more. Everything has a natural aethetic and this couldnt have been a better setting for the launch of Love Milo’s botanical range.

All Love Milo designs are created using photography, none are computer generated, this allows the final product to reflect the graphic lines and forms found in nature while also maintaining the slight imperfections of our environment.

 “It is this natural diversity within african environment that is the inspiration behind all our products. ” – Nicki, founder and owner of Love Milo.

Most of Love Milo’s designs are monochrome and while this is my favourite I do like the hint of colour in the new botany range. Visit the Love Milo’s website here, they also have an online store – how convenient!

Like them on Facebook or instagram to keep up with new and fun projects Nicki is busy on… Want to know more about Nap Living? Visit their website here.
