For the love of babies and local design

Calling all moms, moms-to-be aunties, friends and those who have a craving for beautiful baby things! We’ve found a lovely little gem of a baby boutique in the hood showcasing locally designed and manufactured baby and toddler furniture, as well as local clothing, accessories and toys.

It’s called Paper Planes, and for those of you who don’t know, it’s situated in the Loading Bay on Durban’s trendy Station Drive, a hub for local small creative businesses.

Established this year by a husband and wife team, who felt that the market was in need of gorgeous baby and toddler furniture made by local folk, with local materials, and a little extra attention to detail, Paper Planes boasts a wide variety of cots and compactums all made from solid timbers and birch ply so that there are no harmful emissions associated with MDF products. All their our paints are water based and low voc.

“We have two passions when it comes to kids furniture design, one being fun and creative where we can let our imaginations grow, with contemporary colours and shapes.  The second is a love for the classics, such as our Ella cot. Adding a touch of gracefulness and old world charm to your nursery, with its hand carved rosettes on the posts and turnings, “says Interior Designer Abby Hiemstra.

“We also offer bespoke furniture, custom designed to your needs and style, as well as full nursery and kids room design and installation, so please join our Imagi-Nation and let us get creative with you.”

Visit this fab little shop at 15a Station Drive, inside The Loading Bay.

They are open Tuesday to Friday 9:00 – 16:00  and Saturday and Sundays 9:00 – 13:00
