MOONBASKET

Moonbasket is run by Dani Le Roy (artist and designer) and Laura Summs (artist and crochet maniac). The small company makes luxurious crochet pieces which live comfortably in contemporary settings while maintaining the connection to the rich tradition of this versatile craft. They are eco-conscious too: using cotton, jute or industry overruns to create the pieces.

Moonbasket helps support the least privileged of Cape Town: the crafters who create most of the pieces are women from Khayalitsha township, many of whom have been with them since inception.
