gift guide: mungo & jemima

While some of us are still in denial, there’s no getting away from the fact that festive shopping season is upon us. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas there are birthdays and one of our favourite year end shopping reasons: rewarding ourselves for surviving another year.

The first in our series of gorgeous products from some of our favourite stores and designers to inspire your seasonal shopping features five stunning local product ranges available at Mungo & Jemima.

PICHULIK is a bespoke range of accessories handcrafted with locally manufactured ropes and found materials in Woodstock. These bold statement pieces are inspired by African and Middle Eastern Ornamentation.

We love Ballo Eyewear. Made in Cape Town, the Ballo range of wooden sunglasses offers the strongest wooden frames on the market and are environmentally friendly. The wood veneers are off-cuts from local furniture manufacturers and over 40% of every frame is an extremely strong recycled paper material. Stylish sustainability at it best.

Designer Jeannie Elliot and three dedicated staff members produce this incredible jewellery with meticulous attention to detail. Gemstones and glass hand-woven with needle and thread into organic and ornate pieces.

Summer’s taken its time getting here, but what better way to celebrate warm weather and holiday season than with the perfect bikini. LoveWaterLove believes there’s a Bond bikini girl in every woman and their range of gorgeous swimwear aims to unleash some of that fabulousness. The unique LoveWaterLove line is designed to be mixed and matched in styles, fabrics and sizes to make you look and feel your best on the beach or at the pool.

These beautifully-handcrafted sandals in leather and state of the art Italian Eco fabric engineered from recycled, plastic water bottles are at the top of my “gifts to buy myself” list.
