I was so excited when I first spotted local lovely, Maiden Name, popping up in my Instagram feed – especially given that I’m currently dreaming up the perfect little nursery for our baby boys.
Based in Stellenbosch and founded by talented mama of two, Ingrid Auret Geldenhuys, Maiden Name boasts a beautiful range of neutral, everyday products for both your home and your littlies.
I’m obsessed with the padded faux leather playmats, which are available in three colour ways (my personal favourite is ‘clay’) and two size options.
I’m also dying to get my mitts on one of Maiden Name’s handmade pear-shaped baskets – this would be the perfect storage solution for wayward toys, although I think it would also make for a great laundry basket.
You still have a couple of days left to get your orders in for Maiden Name’s crafty advent calendar, which includes a stick and rope for hanging. Each calendar features 24x little envelopes filled with very basic crafty bits and some stickers just for fun.
I also love the assortment of glass jars on offer – these can be used as a vase, to store your kitchen utensils, as a makeup brush holder… anything you can dream up, really!
There are so many other gorgeous items to feast your eyes on, so head on over to Maiden Name’s website (here) to have a browse – and don’t forget to show this local lovely some support by following Maiden Name over on Instagram (here).
