Decorex Cape Town, taking place from 29 April to 2 May 2016 at the CTICC, introduces two brand-new features that will add an exciting artisanal spin to South Africa’s largest decor, design and lifestyle exhibition
PICTURE AFRICA AT THE 100% TEXTILE PAVILION
The installation is a celebration of the relationship between two powerful mediums, photography and textiles, and the impact both have on design in Africa.

“Visitors should expect a kaleidoscopic amalgamation of the joyous textiles of our colourful continent and the vibrant street and studio photography that encapsulates the spirit and energy of contemporary African life,” says Cathy O’Clery curator of Picture Africa and Programme Director of 100% Design South Africa.
THE MAKER’S CORNER, WHICH FORMS PART OF THE POPULAR CRAFT + CREATE MARKET
A returning crowd-puller, the Craft + Create Market, offers a colourful collection of handmade lifestyle products that showcase the talents and innovative designs of Cape Town’s smaller independent creatives. Live music and craft beer will add to the infectious energy.
