Friend of a Friend

Friend of a Friend is a platform to showcase the amazing talent of South African Designers. Focusing on homeware and accessories (as well as a boutique range of natural skincare) the product base all adheres to ethical and sustainable business practises. Each product at Friend of a Friend comes directly from the designer or community based project that produces it, with all materials sourced locally, and all labour fair and ethical. Most are handmade, making each item unique, and ensuring only the highest quality.

We hope to keep expanding our product base – so have a look at the extensive range on offer from our designers and artists and keep checking back for new additions!

How did your business begin?

Having moved to New Zealand in 2012 I didn’t want to lose my connection with my home country South Africa. Being witness to the abundance of talent by my friends, as well as friends of friends – I wanted to showcase their products in NZ.
Once I began sourcing, I fell in love with not only the people and their products, but their stories too.

What gets you up in the morning?

Coffee!!! I think I may operate on auto-pilot until mid-morning!

When you're not working you are

..generally at work :/ Friend of a Friend is a new business venture which I hope will grow to accumulate more products from talented designers – but in the interim I freelance in the film industry doing primarily Props and Set Dressing on a variety of television series.
