Visit the Maneki store to see which member of the Van Staal family you and your friends identify with.
SOUTHERN CAPE BUSINESS NEWS - Maneki, an exciting, new store that will be home to the "Van Staal" family, opens tomorrow in the Garden Route Mall.
The latest creation of South African jewellery designer, Susan Slee, the "Van Staal" family includes a comprehensive range of quality stainless steel products which are much sought after and highly collectible. These are not only practical but also funky.
Born and bred just north of Jozi, these klomp Boertjies might look like a bunch of metalheads at first glance, but they are a polished little bunch. Whilst every inch "pap and sous", "koeksister" and "Ouma Rusk" connoisseurs, the Van Staals know their Wasabi from their Cross & Blackwell Mayonnaise, their Manolos from their Batas, their De La Mer from their Camphor Cream and that Diesel is not sold by the litre.
Be sure to pop in at the new Maneki shop at the Garden Route Mall to meet Klara, Japie, Griet, Stoffel, Katrien, Sarel, Emma, Daan, Poppie, Dirk and Babsie van Staal. Each Van Staal is 'cut out' completely different, every family member a truly unique individual, with its own unique set of handmade stainless steel salad servers, ladles, teaspoons, cake lifters, braai tongs, pasta tongs, swizzle sticks, cocktail stirrers, ice tongs, pot stands, door hooks and trays, to name but a few. Visit the Maneki store to see which member of the Van Staal family you and your friends identify with.
Maneki's rich array of proudly South African handmade products also includes an extensive range of leather products and unique jewellery pieces. Maneki is a strong promoter of job creation, offering a selection of wonderful hand crafted wooden products too.
