Artaza Studio Catalog Brochure
Natures warmth, purity and elegance woven into rich textured designs with rustic earth and calming ocean elements.
Artaza Studio can be found on the West Coast, Bloubergstrand in Cape Town.
All Artaza designs and the materials with which they are made of, are 100% natural and sustainable. We have our preferred local suppliers who supply our quality sourced natural materials. We support the local community, who bring in a regular supply of sepia bone from our local beaches. All foraged materials are treated, sanitized and prepared at the studio.
More thoughtful home choices come from being aware of sustainability.
With their rich texture, Artaza designs will bring warmth into even the most minimalistic contemporary interior, with their earth elements.
The New Natural is the latest trend in interior design. Structured natural simplicity has become increasingly popular world-wide as we tend to want to escape to nature, after spending stressful days in a concrete jungle. We want safe, inviting spaces where we can rest and regenerate. Trading bright and bold for soft and neutral. Comfortable furnishings, weathered woods and faded tones create calm, comfortable, chilled-out spaces to relax in. Earthy toned pigments are acquired for bold accents in addition to our natural eye-catching décor pieces. Inspiration is found in nature and beautiful poetry can be made using the wonderful materials nature has discarded.
"The richness I achieve comes from Nature, the source of my inspiration"- Claude Monet Our processes: Natural raffia hanks are aged by going through a dark roast coffee bean wash, to achieve depth and warmth. Our clay beads are hand rolled at the studio and form a beautiful addition to some of the designs with their perfectly rugged imperfections. Jute, raffia and raw cotton are splendidly intertwined using knotting and weaving techniques. The ocean supplies an abundance of cuttle sepia bone, which are treated at the studio and delicately sculptured into art forms.
Each piece I make is special to me. They are handmade with love and care. Some may require a little more time than others. “Nature does not hurry yet everything is accomplished” – Lao Tzu All my designs are made to order.
Finishing services are available on request for custom designs and may require consultation. Viewings and purchases can be arranged by appointment at my studio at West Beach Cottages, Bloubergstrand, Cape Town.
I hope to bring as much joy to those choosing my natural designs as I enjoyed creating them.
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair -Khalil Gibran
