Est 2019 in Johannesburg

Who is Jasper & Jute?

A passionate community of local artists. We source and carefully curate collections of stylish art prints, limited editions and one-of-a-kind original artworks by local South African artists. Connecting South African art to homes all over the world. 

What was the idea behind your brand?

A passion for art and decor, a gap in the market and a hobby that started out as a favour to friends meant the beginning of something I could never have imagined.

How many people work for you?

One woman show! 👩‍🎨

What is YOUR favourite product of your collection?

Impossible! I have 5 favourites (at least) from each collection, as reflected in my home on every available wall. However, I have a special place in my heart for my South African artists.

What to you is the best thing about selling on KNUS?

The like-minded community of decor and interior style housed on one website.

How would you say it has impacted your business selling through KNUS?

Knus provided the platform for J&J to take the leap from side-hustle to full-time career.

Why would you say it is important for customers to support local?

Working in local art has given me an inside ticket to the overwhelming abundance of talent this country has to offer when it comes to art. It is so important to me to create awareness of well known and up-and-coming local talent to not only this market, unaware of its local treasures, but to the international market, too.
