Welcome to the Ebony & Ivory Emporium!
Our Ribbon and Paper Collections are designed by ourselves and produced right here in South Africa. We aim to bring you the latest trends, often with a vintage flair and a good dose of sensibility. In our Emporium you may also find a smattering of novelties, household items, haberdashery and craft materials, specially curated for the vintage soul. Happy browsing!
After much tinkering and tailoring, we are delighted to introduce you to our brand new online shop! Our team worked hard to bring you a friendly, modern online shopping experience, complete with all the pretty bells and whistles. We also took the opportunity to update our logo and product mix for a fresh new look. Like always, we are never short on ideas and will be sharing some of those with you in the coming months. May we also extend a warm invitation to you to visit our shop in Diep River, Cape Town, for some old fashioned face-time!
Upcoming event: not to be missed is the SARCDA 2017 Christmas Fair at the Gallagher Estate in August, you will find us in Hall 3.
a green winter is coming....
...hopefully, in more ways than one. May winter rains turn the Cape back into the luscious green beauty she normally is!
Meanwhile, at the shop we are turning up the greens as well. Hot off the press is the darling new retro "Zinnia", a printed cotton ribbon in a variety of warm greens. It combines beautifully with the new grey "Concrete" petersham ribbon and "With Love" cotton ribbon for a winning winter event. Botanically-inspired paper crafts and hand-stitched goodies in a variety of greens will also be available this season in the shop and online.
