[LOVE COLOUR]⁠⁠
⁠⁠
We couldn't echo a louder 'HOORAH' for editor, @stevesmithza ‘S, letter in the recent @visi_mag issue #114.⁠⁠
It summarises so beautifully what we, at Ashanti, have had on our minds lately and seen everywhere around us.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
"I’ve fallen in love with colour.⁠⁠
Hard to believe, given that my monochromatic personal wardrobe and home-decor aesthetic... have usually followed a neutral palette. After enduring months of lockdown, social, economic and emotional pressures brought about by the pandemic... I’ve felt a natural pull towards the positivity and encouragement of colour. ⁠⁠
It feels stridently forward-looking – and a crucial energy to tap into as the world rejuvenates and reinvents itself."⁠⁠

Hi from South Carolina USA. Are you able to ship at this time?
Hi do you make rugs? I am looking for a nice colourful rug to put in our classrooms for the children to sit on for story time. We have two playschools one in Rondebosch and one in Plumstead.
Love this shop. It is so bright and vibrant inside.
Today, I took back one of my Ashanti beanbag covers that had developed a rip. I was pleasantly surprised when Erin inspected it and told me that they would give me a replacement, free of charge. And since they have an amazing selection on hand, it meant that I walked out of the store with something that I liked just as much as the original. Thanks so much! #customer #joy 😄
