Are your products all produced locally? Yes, and we are also developing some of our linen bases locally.
You use interesting craft techniques in your textiles. What are some of your favourites? I love how our hand dyes always change, making each piece unique. The blue print process was an amazing experience. We took carefully selected plants, placed them on 100% treated linen and exposed them to sunlight to capture their delicate nature. As the process was influenced by the sun and cloud cover, each piece was unique.
Three homeware products every house should contain? An embroidered throw, cushions that communicate your interests and a wall panel that you can get lost in.
What has been your most rewarding experience since you founded Evolution Product? To employ young creatives and see how they evolve over the years.
An exhibition at Circa is a real nod to your work being recognised as fine art. What can we expect to see? A collection of our latest assortments, as well as some new one-off pieces.
'Evolution' , Amanda du Plessis' first solo show, is on at Circa Gallery in Joburg until February 27. Visit evolutionproduct.co.za.
