S’Khumba Crafts, Lower South Coast, South Africa……

26 Mar

Sometimes a random road trip can reveal inspiration from the most unexpected places. I visited this magical place a few years ago, before embarking on my career in the roofing industry. I absolutely fell in love with the setting, the products and the charm of the hosts, Brian and Karen Bernstein. Having returned there this past Saturday after a terrific downpour, which had the river raging, I looked at the set-up again, this time with my “roofing eyes” on 🙂 I had to marvel at the ingenuity of Brian in the construction of the spectacular canopy over the tea garden and the clever use of translucent sheeting that provides cover without taking away from nature… Also love the leather detailing on the benches and the unconventional “shoe planters”.

The company specialises in top quality hand-crafted leatherware, including shoes, sandles, belts and bags. The delightful coffee shop serves Lamingtons that are to die for! Well worth a visit when you are in the area.
