Be Still

We found this beautiful design and it was such a pertinent reminder  – with all the hustle and bustle of getting things ready, getting things finished before Christmas, not to mention all the Christmas shopping  – to just BE STILL. Quiet . Mindful . Just for a moment. Here’s to limiting the frenzy and spending time with your loved ones. (Hint: buy online and get all the shopping done in one shot. There are socks for every person in the family, sheepskin slippers, knitting yarns for chill out time, mohair blankies for bigger pressies – all homegrown and made local in South Africa).   Bring on the calm.     photo credits: cape mohair | iwantthat.co.za | bloglovin.com |...

In the Pink

Pink is intuitive and insightful, showing tenderness and kindness with its empathy and sensitivity. In color psychology, pink is a sign of hope. It is a positive colour that inspires warmth and feelings of comfort.  It brings us back to ourselves, reassures us that everything will be ok, with a reminder to love ourselves, first and foremost. Pink alleviates feelings of anger and neglect. It calms and nurtures us. Have a look at these inspiring images of pink – all used in the home, where we should feel ourselves – safe and loved. Different shades of pink  – our tartan style Candyfloss blanket and hints of pink in our Champagne and Flax blankets fit the theme. Teamed with charcoal, cream, natural wood and even a dash of copper, can’t you just feel the calm?   Sources: http://www.empower-yourself-with-color-psychology.com/color-pink.html; images: apartmentherapy.com ; julieblanner.com; homedecordesigns.com; capemohair.com;...

Photo shoot with Airloom

Cape Mohair blankets recently teamed up with Airloom rugs in our photography studio. Cape mohair is proud to bring you a range of exquisitely crafted blankets which harness the innate qualities of mohair, the noble fibre. Their blankets are luxurious yet functional, keeping you naturally insulated while providing a splash of colour or complimenting a calming colour palette.  All of Cape Mohair’s blankets and much of Airloom’s range, are designed and produced  right here in South Africa. Airloom’s locally designed range is original and contemporary, and very close to our hearts. Brainchild of a husband and wife team, the idea of Airloom was formed when they went in search of a rug for their own home. They were looking for something that was beautiful, functional, and that didn’t break the bank . . . a rather tall order, it turns out. And so, out of many a fruitless rug shopping trip, the idea for Airloom was born. Have a look at these shots . . .   Find all these blanket designs on our ‘Blankets‘ page on www.mohairmillshop.com Find all Airloom rugs on www.airloom.co.za or email enquiries@airloom.co.za    ...
