Cape Vanilla – unique crafts from the Cape

Cape Vanilla – in the Summer House just beyond the Courtyard shops

Originally from Suffolk, Richard and Julia have now put down roots in Norfolk (albeit with a a foot in South Africa too!) and are truly delighted to have moved to Creake Abbey.  Having been visiting South Africa for the last 23 years and, inspired by the many creative crafts, they have decided to bring back some of their favourite collections discovered across the Western Cape. Apart from essential overheads, all sales are re-invested into buying more stock, helping to support local employment in South Africa.

The primary range is Original Tea Bag Designs – a unique collection of products where decorated recycled teabags are applied to a wide range of products from tea trays to tea lights.

In addition, they also offer screen-printed table linen in the Protea design, porcelain flower reed diffuser stems, as well as boats and houses made from recycled apple boxes – all beautifully crafted by hand. Decorated ostrich eggs add a bit of glamour to the line up!
