Description

“Kokon yarn was created to express┬á my love of textiles and craft, to find an outlet for my creativity and my enquiring mind and to celebrate my heritage and history.

I was born in South Africa in Port Elizabeth, the capital of the Eastern Cape Province. From my earliest childhood memories I was always busy with craft, drawing, pottery, painting, embroidery, jewellery making, papier mach├ę to name a few. I will never forget that as a small child of 4 or 5 years, I sewed an oven mitten for my nursery school teacher whom I adored. It had an odd shape, did not fit and almost fell apart, but I was so chuffed with my handmade gift that I wrapped it in a shoe box and proudly gave it to her.

My mother knew that with each birthday and Christmas present, if there were enough coloured pencils, coloured markers and drawing blocknotes included, the gift was perfect no matter what else was included.

I have two sisters and up until the age of about 6 years, my mom made all our clothes and dressed us identically, which I loved. We were her pride and joy and she sewed from yellow and white gingham bikiniÔÇÖs with little white square buckles, to winter dresses worn with turtle necks and stockings. I also had two grandmothers who not only dressed beautifully but also did embroidery and sewing.”
