Colleen Babb spotted us on social media 5 years ago and called to see how she could get involved. We are so happy she did because this is just the kind of magic that makes Spaza products so special. Having started her knitting career at the age of 7 years, Colleen has a lot of stitches behind her and she doesn't give up for anything so there are many more to come.
The question that I get most about our dish covers is, do they keep your food fresh like plastic? As mother nature would have it, fresh is related to time. The theory that plastic can 'lock-in freshness' was discovered around an advertising agency's boardroom table and not in a science lab.
Earlier this year we sent a call-out on our social media channels for young South African designers to pitch a design proposal for a festive-themed series of dish covers. In the end, we chose Mokgadi Masipa's very clean and contemporary design. We felt Mokgadi's concept was universal and it made us smile.
