Product review {and giveaway}: Jislaaik

Octopus scatter cushion

Local is lekker, we know this. Which is why a few weeks ago I decided to tell you all about a few of my favourite local things I have around my house. One of them comes from a rad little online shop called Jislaaik.

Jislaaik is an online shop which curates awesome products from local designers and artisans. They have a range of products from home decor, babies and kiddies to accessories, fashion, gifts and more.

Their aim is to showcase and promote local designers and artisans so it’s a great place to find local products that you won’t find in big shops. There are so many cool things to look at in this shop but here are a few of my favourites:

These chunky knitted merino wool blankets:


These soft blocks for the kidlets:

In celebration of Heritage Day and all things local and because I am such a fan of the Jislaaik online shop, I’ve decided to do a giveaway!

The winner will receive one of these awesome Octopus Colour Me scatter cushion and a 10% voucher for the online store.

The Octopus Colour Me scatter cushion is a cushion and cushion cover with the black and white octopus print. You also receive a set of fabric markers which you can use to colour in the cover however you’d like. When you’ve completed your masterpiece, you simply need to iron the cover to set the colour. Perfect for a relaxing activity for yourself or a creative activity for your little.

The 10% voucher can be used online until the end of October 2018.

What are you waiting for?
