Our Story


We are inspired to innovate and we love to produce exquisite products. Our passion is designing new products or just re-purposing old ones to make what we do interesting and to beautify the world around us. Our aim is to design and produce South African luxury products of the same high standards (and beyond!) of those found internationally.
The team of Ebony (Eulália) – roots from exotic lands with dark hair to match the earthy, practical and grounded personality and Ivory (Igna) blowing in from the Namibian desert – with the platinum hair to match the crazy designer dreamer personality, set up shop in 2005. Using the influence of vintage, we design our own boutique woven ribbons, paper products and handcrafted goodies. All our products are produced in South Africa with the emphasis on quality and craftsmanship.
We are always thrilled to see the positive feedback we have from our customers. To ensure that our range remains unique and interesting, we update the product selection regularly. A selection of our products are available online or if you are able – please visit our shop in Cape Town for a complete Ebony & Ivory experience. We would love to meet you!
