The Klooftique Core
Who are we at our core?
2020 has been noted as a year for extensive reflection, with many making a concerted effort to do and be better. In an industry dominated by fast-trends and instant gratification, many businesses, like ours, have been reassessing who they are and considering new and innovative ways to keep up with growing giants.
After much review, we’ve realised that there was one thing that continuously rang true; we cherish our roots and it’s time to get back to them.
Klooftique began as a small, family-run antique store in 1973 and it was in this small store that the late Gerald Furman breathed life into forgotten pieces by carefully restoring them by hand.
46 years later, Klooftique still occupies the same premises and has become a respected brand synonymous with style, quality and sustainability.
We enjoy the client visits to Klooftique Cape Town’s showroom. And we love that we get to create an environment that facilitates a comfortable, unique shopping experience. Mostly, we do this as we understand that choosing a piece of furniture is not just about “choosing a piece of furniture”. We appreciate that your piece will become a part of your family and its many beloved memories. Cultivating valuable relationships with our Trade Clients has always been high o our priorities list. Today, our partners are confident in our ability to cater to them and their client, alike.
Our Team in Paarden Island
Our skilful artisans manufacture each piece at our factory in Paarden Island; the luxury of this being that clients can specify their fabric, leather, size and specifications – within reason, of course 😊
We absolutely adore what we do; from helping our clients choose a design and fabric, to hearing what our clients think of their pieces after delivery. Every piece is unique and comes with it’s own characteristics. All products are hand-made by our team of artisans at our humble factory in Paarden Island.
And that is who we are. That is what we will be redirecting our focus to again; getting back to core Klooftique.
Because, “Oos, Wes; Tuis Bes”
We look forward to sharing more with you over the coming weeks. Whether it’s a feature introducing the hands that built your furniture, or which fabric suits your space — watch this space for an array of must-read blogs.
