Poppy Kabini is a 29-year-old businesswoman and creative from Pretoria. Her love for design began in primary school where she was taught to crochet by a woman from her community. She then started making clothes from wool, but would only make them for herself and a few close friends and family. Her late grandfather, who was a master carpenter and craftsman, then taught her how to sew. While studying journalism and radio production at university, she started an informal business, making handbags and jewellery and selling them to her schoolmates and community members.

They set the look and mood of the space and establish the atmosphere. “Colours to keep in mind include pops of sage green, dark blues and indigo.” But while we spend years agonising about what paint colour to use on the walls, the ceiling typically gets little to no thought at all.

Pone Creatives is a textile design and manufacturing studio owned by Lesego Maloka, a creative, modern African textile designer on a mission to spark joy through colour and heritage. Deeply rooted in her mother’s and grandmother’s influences, her brand Pone Creatives was born. Today Maloka specialises in jacquard weaving her textiles for home furnishings to create colourful, heritage-loving homes. My interest in textile design began when I was about five years old. Every day when I came from preschool I would spend an hour watching my late grandmother work. She was a knitter and a seamstress.
