Feature on Creative – MillaMae



We first saw Millamae products at I heart market in Durban and it was LOVE at first sight. The pretty designs, colour combinations and quirky gift tags were needed at The Ruby Orchard! We are so excited to introduce you to Sarah from Millamae and let you in on her creative business….

1// How did your business begin? When / where / how did it all start? 
Almost exactly a year ago my partner Tracy approached me to join my creative side and her printing experience together with our love for beautiful things. We had a few brainstorms, some late nights, a few laughs combined with great synergy and a steady idea of where we were going and before we knew it MILLAMAE SWEET STATIONERY & PARTY THINGS came to life.

2// Why do you do what you do? 
We want to share our love for colour, stationery and beautifully printed items!

3// When you were younger what did you want to be when you grew up?!
Can’t remember!

4// What inspires you when designing new products? 
Fashion, colours, dreams, nature, ideas that just randomly pop into our heads are the best!

We want to add our own splash of colour, fun and creativity into the world (Secretly dream of a beautifully MILLAMAE designed store, can see it clearly)

Hard work pays off

7// Why should our customers buy your products?

8// What’s your favourite product from your line?
