Lou Hopper brings a carefully chosen group of South African designers to a UK audience for the first time. The focus is on contemporary printed textiles: strong colour palettes, eclectic patterns and interesting textures. Products range from home furnishings to designer bags and clothing. The idea came about through family connections to South Africa and regular travel to that country.
Each designer's work is handmade and they often produce limited editions. All products are ethically produced in South Africa. Lou Hopper is proud to be working with and building relationships with the enterprising designers and business women behind these individual brands. Much of the craftsmanship, such as printing and sewing, is done by the designer, or produced by local craftspeople, whom they have teamed up with. Some of the designers have invested in building teams of previously unskilled workers, training them up to undertake skillful printing techniques or complex seamstress work.

UK Express delivery for all items, excluding cushions - £9.95
UK Express delivery for cushions, £14.95.
If you live in the UK Mainland and require your items quickly, please use our express delivery service. We have to charge a bit more to send our cushions as the courier service costs us more, because cushions are both bulky and heavy to send.
