Luxury accessories brand Missibaba has just launched their latest collection, titled The Reference Section of The Sea Point Library.
“The collection came about because we were unable to travel to find inspiration, as we’ve done previously, so we spent a week at the Sea Point Library, trawling through the reference section, noses buried deep in art, design and gardening books, and old National Geographic magazines. It was absolute heaven!” explains Chloe Townsend and Lizel Strydom, the duo behind the brand.
Using appliqué and cut-out techniques, the pair created three different patterns in multiple colour options. The first is called The Quilt, which was inspired by an image of an Amish quilt in the Museum of American Folk Art; the second is The Tropicana, “a byproduct of a watermelon print paper-cutting session,” and finally The Pineapple Scallop, an off-cut paper creation.
