With Cape Town being one of the world's top destinations and known for fast growing design and art, the development of The Studio was a natural progression for Ellerman House. The aim was to create a space on the property where guests will be able to purchase high-end products that are unique to South Africa.
Guests will have access to a uniquely curated collection of creative products and art such as diamonds by Benguela, bags by Missibaba, jewellery by Pichulik and many more loved local designers, manufacturers and artists. The products that form part of The Collection are seasonally refreshed and will ensure that only the best and most up to date products are available to the luxury travel market at Ellerman House. Some of the designers and brands we have partnered with include:
Pichulik: Founder of Pichulik, Katherine-Mary, was inspired after a trip to India to create hand-crafted jewellery made in Cape Town. Her ranges speak of the intimate relationship women have with jewellery and speak of her travels, her mother and grandmother and people that have made in impact on her life. Some items from the Pichulik range can be seen and purchased at The Studio at Ellerman House.
Mungo: Founded by Master Weaver, Stuart Holding, in 1988, Mungo has fast become a household name in South Africa and is synonymous with quality weaving and is an expression of Stuart's own skill, philosophy and aesthetic. 15 years on, Mungo has crossed generations and is now a family run business, taking it forward and sharing our unique story and skill with the world.
Benguela: Benguela's journey started with a single person's dream of expanding the diamond experience, to more than just diving for diamonds. Wynand Hendrikse has been a diamond diver since the late 90's working in many parts of Africa. Benguela tells the unique story of sea diamonds from being mined in the seabed to being set in a beautiful piece of jewellery.
Everard Read: Founded in Johannesburg in 1913, Everard Read is South Africa's oldest commercial gallery. A Cape Town gallery opened in 1996 in the V&A Waterfront and strives to maximize exposure of fine contemporary paintings and sculptures. Solo and group exhibitions showcase established contemporary and emerging younger artists from all over the world. Some of the artist's work can be found in The Studio at Ellerman House.
