Welcome to Gawjus!

Our story:
Our family hospitality business, Lavender Blue, started in 2004 in a farm shed in East London, headed by Karen. It was all about family, friends, loyalty, relationships, beautiful food, beautiful things, and a love for what we do! At first, we didn't take it too seriously, and it was just a whole lot of fun. But, as the business grew, we started taking it more seriously, and we decided that our selection of beautiful things needed its own space. Thus, we built a new section onto our existing shed and moved the retail portion of the shop into the new building, creating Gawjus - a dedicated space for beautiful things that make you and your home look and feel "gawjus."Gawjus carries a wide range of lovely products, including clothing, leather items, bags, shoes, scarves, jewelry, candles, and silk pillowcases. Our artisanal products come from the many suppliers we've met over the years, both locally and abroad, most of whom have become friends. Our store reflects this diversity with products from everywhere, both locally and from far-away places.

As demand for our products continued to grow, we're finally launching our online store gawjus.capetown after five years of wanting to but not getting around to it. Our online store features our new signature line of Gawjus Dresses and Gawjus Sleepware, designed by us and manufactured in India. We believe that women are fabulous and our new clothing range should make you feel even more so.
So grab a cup of tea, find a comfy spot, and enjoy our Gawjus Store. 
Thank you for taking the time to read our story!

Love,
Karen xx
