Beautiful hand loomed fabrics situated on the Main Road. Feels like walking into a museum. Stocks cushions, bags and jewelry and there is a lady who takes you through the whole process. Has a small coffee shop on the premises.

What a nice surprise. We did the tour and our tour guide was very well informed. She could also speak Afrikaans, which we are not used too anymore. We loved everything and recommend it to everyone. Definitely a must see!

A very interesting shop to see. They explain about how they extract the silk and weave it into fabric. It is free and well-mannered older children may enjoy the information given. Loads of lovely silk items to buy and they even have an online store....More

The shop and factory is very interesting and purchases were made. There is a branch shop at Pilgrim's Rest and if you have the time and inclination you can arrange to go out to the farm
