“If you take any activity, any art, any discipline, any skill, take it and push it as far as it will go, push it beyond where it has ever been before, push it to the wildest edge of edges, then you will force it into the realm of magic.”
Tom Robbins, Even Cowgirls Get The Blues
cowgirlblues is a cool Cape Town-based dye house and design studio specialising in South African wool and mohair.
Frustrated at not being able to find suitable wool locally, despite South Africa being the world's largest mohair producer, Bridget Henderson decided to start spinning and dyeing her own, and so thecowgirlblues brand was born.
Their custom colour palette is created in-house, and all dyeing is done by hand. The colour palette is updated regularly to keep it fresh, contemporary and inspiring, but customers are always welcome to continue ordering prior season shades.
"Inspiration is everywhere and we draw ours from the local landscape, people, flora and fauna, as well as contemporary fashion and international trends."
