Moonbasket… crochet perfection

Moonbasket… crochet perfection

I discovered moonbasket’s beautiful crochet lampshades at last year’s Design Indaba. Dani Le Roy and Laura Summs are the two designers behind these unique, handmade pieces. Their spiral stitched globe shades are so striking and are getting rave reviews worldwide! Great to see that are also being stocked at the lovely UK online shop, room #39.
So I have some exciting news for all my Capetonian readers… Dani is opening up her studio this Saturday and having a studio sale! Bookmark it and get down there!

I’m loving that this age old hand crafted technique is having a revival and being re-interpreted in more modern ways. Some more crochet inspiration…
