I had these up for sale on etsy, but decided to rather share them for free. I’ve given them as Christmas gifts and they seem to be a hit!
I wanted to make bookmarks with real African. flair, drawing inspiration from townships, villages, metropole, landscapes; places I’ve lived at, people I’ve met. And not a leopard pattern or safari theme in sight. So each month is different, some designs might reflect that month’s international or local theme: like Valentine’s Day or Women’s month.
Another bookmark with quiver trees, kokerboom in Afrikaans. Vanrhynsdorp has a quiver tree nursery with trees of all sizes. By South African law, picking of flowers or removing any plant material from our indigenous plants is an offence, but you may buy quiver trees from a registered nursery.
Every end of the month I’ll upload the following month’s bookmark calendar.
