The Collaborative

The Collaborative is a bouquet of small South African designers. It was founded in 2016 by Chantelle and Mariette, both having the same passion and a similar vision for small designers and makers in their field. Mariette runs @little.interiors and @littleme_decor combining her love for interior design with gorgeous stimulating decor. Chatelle runs @lafede_designs known for their handmade, minimalist heirloom soft toys.

Sharing resources, audiences and social platforms has proven to be very successful in building brand awareness. The Collaborative encourages collaboration between brands and wish to showcase these with curated photo shoots and artisan shows

The goal is to showcase South African creators and makers with beautiful curated photo shoots using locally designed and manufactured items. We want to encourage local trends using inspiration from international trendsetters. If you are interested in adding your brand and products to the next shoot please join our mailing list here or send us an e-mail to
