First Thursdays Festive Season Collection

We've put together a list of products of various kinds that we think you might like, either for yourself or someone you care about. All products are locally produced or created by participants and peers of First Thursdays. 

 

First Thursdays Tote Bag
R120
We produced our first official First Thursdays tote bag in a limited run of only 100. The "Bree Street Boogie Woogie" design pays homage to Mondrian's 1943 work "Broadway Boogie Woogie", which is now in MOMA's permanent collection. This tote is big, strong and comfortable to carry. Great for carrying groceries, going to the beach, or cruising around on First Thursdays.

Tea at Anstey's by Tanya Zack and Mark Lewis
R240
Yet another great publication from our friends at Fourthwall Books, this is a story about an iconic building in the Johannesburg inner city that is emblematic of the many, radical transformations of the city over the last two decades. Snatch a first edition while you still can.

Simon Deporres T-Shirt

These guys design some of the best menswear in town, all locally produced. Their t-shirts are timeless, durable, and fit really nicely, but they also make great shirts, swimming trunks, trousers, shorts, and jackets if that appeals to you too.

Not Seen Bag
