Just an hour from Durban lies Pietermaritzburg and the newly launched creative showcase, House of Heart Emporium. Started by Nada Kooy and Ronel du Preez in March this year, the space acts as a curated shop: contemporary design meets craft, with an array of diverse products. The space, as the name suggests, is a celebration of handmade items and gives both established and emergent talent a marketplace. The selection ranges from art and clothes to gifts, with some of our finest local talent on display.
There is a café, nursery and children’s play area where you can relax, as well as a market focusing on local products and fresh produce on the last Saturday of each month.
House of Heart Emporium is based at Dunrobin Garden Centre, 31 Warwick Road, Ferncliff, Pietermaritzburg. To get in touch, visit their Facebook page or email Nada at email@example.com.
