Like many South Africans, the news of the passing of iconic artist and designer, Carrol Boyes has left the HOMEMAKERS team deeply saddened and we mourn this sudden loss with the rest of the country.

As stated in the official announcement on the Carrol Boyes Facebook page we hope that her 30 year “legacy of excellence, unity, empowerment and pioneering functional art” will continue for many years to come.

In the video below, posted in 2016, Carrol tells her story and reveals the love, respect and extraordinary creativity that makes the brand a household name across the world.

As we look to the future, we hope to celebrate Carrol Boyes’ life and help continue her legacy through partnerships, such as the sponsorship in the Eco Interior Kitchen at the Cape Town HOMEMAKERS Expo at the end of August.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to her family, friends, community and employees who mourn at this time.
