It was the most enormous treat to visit South Africa this week and to meet so many designers and artisans, responsible for making some of our favourite collections here at ibbi. And no treat was greater than visiting the pottery where our vibrant hand painted ceramics are created. Our ceramics are colourful, sunny and beautifully bold: just like those who create them! It’s early spring in South Africa now and the gardens are bursting with spectacular flora. Fairylike emerald humming birds shimmer and miraculously hover before your eyes. And the sky is the most delicious, brilliant, beautiful blue. Inspired? Impossible not to be!
