About Us

“We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving, and we all have the power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing.”

Lousia May Alcott

Here at Kalika’s Loom, we spend our days creating woven rugs, tapestries, cloth, runners, place mats, shawls, scarves, braids, bands and bespoke items. 

We also source, curate and list woven items by other South African Weavers so as to showcase a wider offering of SA’s artisanal weaving culture.

And we absolutely love it.

Our Story

There once was a weaver named Linda.
Who couldn’t be bothered with Tinder.
She got a black cat.
And wove a great mat.
Now she sells products with splendour.

In all seriousness though, Kalika’s Loom is simply a concept born out of the genuine desire to cultivate a life of more weaving and a hope to awaken the love for handwoven items in others seeking a life of heart made and less manufactured.

Our Mission

The art and craft of weaving takes many years to master and only one generation to loose touch with.

It is our hope to strengthen the collective love for handwoven items by providing a platform for South African weavers to share the beautiful items they create.

In our own studio we strive to create items that bring depth of character to the home and will be cherished for many years.

A home is nothing without its creature comforts. In our book, that’s a snug rug, cozy jersey and of course, a cat.
