Well, hello there !

We believe that homes hold people, moments and things we love and adore most. We strive to inspire people, help them curate their dream spaces and put a little bit of sparkle into their everyday routines.

Our curated collections features a variety of styles from Scandinavian to modern bohemian designs. We focus on using only top quality and sustainably sourced materials from within South Africa. - We are proud to say that our biggest inspiration comes from other small, exclusive South African owner run businesses that set out to uplift their local communities and strive to be as sustainable and ethical as possible.
We too share a passion for creating opportunities for local creators to learn new skills and earn an income to provide for their families. Wire Maven started as a dream and passion to create an opportunity for local unemployed artisans.

Where it started

Shortly after my studies I started working for a beautiful local brand - Mia Mélange. Everything about this business is beautiful. The products, the team efforts, the involvement of the business owners and the love everyone has for each other ; from top management all the way to the cleaning lady. If you are not familiar with Mia Mélange, they have a variety of 100% cotton rope products that are hand made in their studio in Stellenbosch. I worked closely alongside SHE-eo Jeanneke Malan and quickly learnt "Passion is a flame that spreads quickly.".
Shortly after I joined I realised that I (and everyone else on the team) was playing a key part in uplifting people's livelihoods. And I absolutely loved the feeling! Almost immediately I knew that I wanted to do exactly the same. I knew that I had to design something that is not only aesthetically pleasing enough to attract buyers, but also simple enough to manufacture, so that individuals without a formal education can easily produce it. I wanted to take everything that I have learnt during my time with Mia Mélange and use this to create even more opportunities.
In 2021 it started as a passion project, a little side hustle. In 2023 we decided to take the leap of faith and are now pursuing this dream full time. Our team is still small, but we are confident that this will change soon!
Our hope is that you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy offering them to you. Our customers are our priority and we strive to give them the best products and service.

Wastage at Wire Maven
