    Skinny laMinx is a design company in Cape Town that’s all about midcentury style, pattern &

    colour, with a dose of African chic thrown in for good measure.

     

    It all started in 2007 when Heather Moore began making papercuts and screenprints in a little

    painter’s studio, and selling them online.

     

    “I’ve always loved making intricate papercuts, and I also enjoy carving linoleum and printing

    fabric. Working with my hands causes me to come up with solutions, lines and shapes that I

    find unexpected, and it makes the design process exciting,” says Heather.

     

    By 2012, the business had grown so much that Skinny laMinx opened a shop in central Cape

    Town, at 201 Bree Street. Upstairs from the shop is a light and airy studio, where the team is hard

    at work, cutting, sewing and packaging goods to send off to homes and stores across the globe.

     

    Each year, Heather designs a new textile collection and we bring out new fabric and paper

    products for sale. Skinny laMinx fabric goods include cushions, shopping bags, table runners,

    napkins, tea towels, purses and smock dresses for toddlers. We also sell fabric by the metre for

    use as upholstery, curtaining and other décor items.

     

    “My design inspiration draws on my environment and experience, resulting in clean and

    simple design in interesting colours. People like the designs, but they also like following me

    on Instagram to see how the designs develop out of the things I see and make.”

     

    Some of our very successful design collaborations include working with Chronicle Books, Cloud9

    Fabrics, Heath Ceramics and there are more in the pipeline too.

     

    About the future, Heather says:

     

    “I hope to keep evolving as a designer, ensuring that our patterns and products continue to inspire everyone who sees Skinny laMinx to think afresh about pattern, colour and shape.”
