“ We wanted to bring over South African design that made fellow South Africans proud. ”

Who are we?

Started by two Capetonians living in London, Helanzi and Nicola have created a platform that promotes and celebrates the creatives, artists, makers and designers that South Africa has to offer.

After studying together, both worked in the creative industry in South Africa and abroad. Since moving to the UK, they have focused on creating a home away from home. Kloof Studio has grown from a passion for the South African creative scene, and a longing for home. It has since developed into a collaborative concept store.

Our Pillars

Kloof Studios is centred around three main pillars; creativity, craftsmanship and collaboration.

Kloof values creativity and design as a centric part of our lifestyles and culture. We believe good design is good business. We aim to share South African craftsmanship, as we believe it to be exceptional and rich in culture. Each artisanal item is handpicked by us. Chosen to represent the story of how we see South Africa. Kloof Studio is a concept store that stands for a community of like-minded individuals, connecting and collaborating between South Africa and the United Kingdom.
