Feature on Creative – Nicole from Prêt-à-pot

Prêt-à-pot is a private concern established in 1985 and run by Nicole Kingston.  They are one of our newest suppliers at The Ruby Orchard and the gorgeous products are flying out.  Prêt-à-pot took part in Kamers – The biggest and most exclusive pop up retail event in SA.  You will not find these anywhere else in the Midlands so be sure to pop in and have a look. 

Nicole describes the business and what inspires the work for us…
We are passionate about our customers, our staff and our brand-image. We do not employ mass production techniques, preferring to pursue quality item-by-item through limited quantity manufacturing. Each item is handmade with care so while this does take longer, the end result is worth the wait.

Inspiring our shapes is the everyday environment: sources such as architecture, landscape and nature. We are always evolving and introducing new and exciting forms, textures and colours to our work. We are driven to create beautiful functional pieces that add value and a little bit of lovelyness to everyday life. The collective ability of our staff brings you captivating items.


I just love these pictures from the factory, truly handmade and every piece unique.


We have more stock on the way and will be ordering more very soon!
