A Special Edition From Something Good Studio

We asked Something Good Studio, an initiative that supports women in the arts and crafts industries, to create a special-edition graphic blanket for HL.

For the past few issues, we’ve teamed up with some of the country’s most talented creatives to bring you exclusive collections for our online store – a site that’s fast becoming one of the country’s most unique shopping destinations for African design.

From asking graphic designers to interpret a new vision of Johannesburg to commissioning five ceramicists to produce a special, limited-edition range of tableware, our collaborations have resulted in one-of-a-kind pieces with a distinctly local flair.

For this Design and Architecture Issue, we tasked Something Good Studio, a South African arts collaborative that supports women in the arts and crafts industry, to come up with an architecturally graphic winter blanket.

The special edition Maja Maljević blanket (pictured above) will be available exclusively via the House and Leisure Shop for the next two months.

More About Something Good Studio

Something Good Studio founder Zydia Botes enlisted the help of artist Maja Maljević for our collaboration, who looked to Ludo – her favourite childhood game – for geometric, playful inspiration.

Dedicated to celebrating local artistry and South African talent, the Something Good Studio curation of iconic art pieces – woven into beautiful and versatile blankets or throws – celebrates the talented illustrators and artists who collectively wish to share a deeper, happy and hopeful meaning.

Rooted in South Africa, this is a playful, bespoke range of limited-edition blankets perfect for use at home, but also ideal for super-stylish picnics, sunning on the beach – or even hung as wall art.

All Something Good Studio wares are ethically produced in Cape Town. The idea is to support and celebrate local craftsmanship using fibres sourced from community farmers; all the art blankets are jacquard-woven using locally sourced and dyed fibres.
