About Us

My Mom

In 1979, my mom launched a Material & Wool Shop in Standerton, sparking a dream in me to follow in her footsteps. In August 2016, that dream came true when I bought RASH, kicking off our family business in Durbanville. Initially selling fabric, haberdashery, and Brother Sewing, Embroidery & Craft machines, I felt something was amiss. So, we expanded to offer a vibrant array of wool & yarns, completing our shop with all the trimmings!

My Love of Crochet

My love affair with crochet blossomed thanks to my dear friend Naomi from Richards Bay, who patiently guided me through my first stitches, starting with charming doilies. Instantly hooked, I found myself immersed in a world of creativity that brought immense joy to my mother, who had always been my go-to for knitting and sewing projects during my school days. Her pride in my newfound passion only fueled my enthusiasm further!


My Daughter

Welcoming my daughter into the business has been an absolute delight! Despite never having crocheted or sewn before, her enthusiasm knows no bounds as she dives headfirst into both hobbies with boundless energy and excitement. It's been a joy to watch her embrace these new skills with such animation and passion, adding her unique flair to our family business. Together, we're weaving a colorful tapestry of creativity and laughter, making each day in the shop a cherished memory in the making.
