Artisanal beauty at The Trading Company

Artisanal beauty at The Trading Company

The Trading Company
Last week I visited Spice Route just outside Paarl for the very first time. The reason for the visit was to attend the official launch of The Trading Company which is a beautiful lifestyle store on the estate. I’ll be sharing more about Spice Route tomorrow but first let’s find out more about The Trading Company.

This gorgeous store is owned by Abigail Bisogno who has a real passion for South African design and celebrating local talent. Abigail has put together a fantastic selection of homeware and accessories, with a focus on natural fibres and products with a distinct African flavour.  

The store itself has a wonderful rustic, farmhouse feel thanks to designer, Camilla Fraser, who worked together with Abigail. I’m mad about the traditional floor with its red klompie bricks and the fabulous feature wallpaper. The wallpaper was custom made for the store and is actually a cropped and enlarged section of an original painting by Camilla’s mother, the fine artist Patricia Fraser.

Eclectic and full of colour, The Trading Company is a real feast for the eyes and definitely worth a visit!
