Gift Fair 2009: Ronel Jordaan

We really liked Ronel Jordaan's booth at the New York International Gift Fair. Using natural fibers (mostly 100% merino wool) that are hand-dyed and hand-felted by a group of trained women in South Africa, Ronel's designs include felted rocks and pebbles, wool blankets, bird's nests, and web-like curtains. The general aesthetic is peaceful, cozy and contemplative...

Prices range from $110 to $810 for the hand felted marino wool pebbles (which come in a range of sizes, some as big as a boulder); $22-$30 for the nests; $140-$340 for the hand-felted wool pillows; and around $350 for the wool blankets and curtains. Contact Amaridian for ordering information.
