Last weekend I had a fantastical time in Knysna and George, with just one whiff of the aromatic sea filled air, I was intoxicated. The highlight of the weekend was finding some very cool local shops, stocked with beautiful locally made gems. I get all giddy with excitement when I find fresh innovative pieces that are proudly South African, so this was the highlight of my trip. I bought this gorgeous handmade leather cuff at Leather Rose in Thesen Island, each of their pieces are handmade in Knysna and each piece is a one of a kind. The top I bought at the cutest little boutique store that sources their clothes from all over the country and many of their items are also one offs or produced for a limited run. I bought two gorgeous little tops there.
