Spice & Rice

When I went on holiday to Durban Fatima (my special seamstress) asked me to buy some curry for her. The curry shop was infused with smells for the noise but my eyes caught sight of these gorgeous rice bags.


Made from cotton I immediately thought of Chraka Pennywhistles money wallets.


Sadly, I walked out without one. They cost R50 for a small bag of rice and I would need more than one to make anything …and the thought of me walking onto the plane carrying several bags of rice made me laugh. I still am not sure what I would have used them for but I do dream about that saffron yellow and the possibilities. Does anybody know where I could buy them locally?

    What great colors! I can imagine you having fun coming up with ideas for the rice bags! Maybe you should try some restaurants – I bet they throw them out!

    Komati in Obs sometimes has rice in bags, but I haven’t seen anything like that colour. You could also try Fargos in Obs?

    Check out your local Chinese restaurant, they might use rice in bags and simply trow them away…

    Hey there :) Thank you for the mention:)

    Those colors are so rich! Love them! I could definitely see you making something eye catching and functional. They would make a lovely and bright accessory. Even something to wear like a wrist cuff would be ultra cool just because of the color factor.
