All about us

Our shop houses a beautiful range of décor, furniture and gifts made locally and sourced internationally.
The Ruby Orchard is the perfect shop for rustic, stylish and timeless pieces without the designer price tags.

I am amazed by the creativity and entrepreneurial spirit that South Africa has to offer and source many products at trendy, crafty markets.

Meet the owner

Hello, I am Hannah, a British Mum on a South African adventure, I would love you to take a stroll through our ‘Natural, Homely and Refreshing’ store situated in the heart of the beautiful KZN Midlands at Yard 41 in Howick.

My background is in Sports Science and Physical Education, but my love has always been interiors. Inspired by British country cottages, old farmhouses and rustic barns we aim to excite and inspire your innerhome maker with original yet timeless, rustic yet stylish pieces.

I carefully select ranges of décor, ceramics and gifts and design furniture, frames and mirrors made by our in-house team of carpenters. We aim to be a must stop shop in the Midlands with products you won't find anywhere else, pop in and say Hi!

This is such a cool store, if your looking for those special items to turn your house into a home, you will find them here. The quality is great, with a lot of local products. The scented candles are amazing and I think i literally found the softest scarf blanket ever. I’m literally coming back for it, closer to winter time. This is a great find and I highly recommend you check it out if you are in Howick or midlands area
