Wherever possible, and as much as availability and quality allow, Kat van Duinen endeavours to source materials and skills within South Africa.
“One of my signatures are luxurious, natural fibers wherever possible, because they sit on your shape elegantly and move fluidly with your body; they allow your skin to breathe; they last, and, of course, they look and feel luxurious.” – Kat van Duinen
