Kiwinet: A Dream To Succeed
From Out of Africa diaphanous white netting that gently billows in the breeze to luxurious fabrics dip-dyed in shades and hues to match your mood or beaded and embellished to create your own stylish sleep sanctuary … if you can dream it, Kiwinet can make it.
Following the dream
Kiwinet Mosquito Nets, based in the quaint village of Stanford in the Overberg region of the Western Cape, have designed, and manufactured innovative, elegant and distinctive mosquito nets since 1994 when a ‘Kiwi’ who followed her heart (a South African farmer) to South Africa.
When she couldn’t find any good quality mosquito nets for their children, she decided to make her own, and Kiwinet was founded as her friends and family started placing orders for themselves.
A personal approach
Robyn Lavender, a Stanford resident bought the business in 1998 when the ‘Kiwi’ left the area and from cutting fabric on the floor of a small Wendy House on a farm, employing a part-time seamstress with one sewing machine, the business has grown to include a staff of 25 cutters, seamstresses, tailors, carpenters, designers and quality controllers all supported by a strong administrative team.
The workshop is guided by Robyn’s hands-on personal approach to become a household name within the Interior design and Décor industry, with elegant, quality nets installed in all parts of the country from private homes to luxury lodges throughout Africa, the Indian Ocean Islands, the Caribbean and across Europe.
Creating sublime sleep sanctuaries
Specialising in both standard sizes as well as custom-made nets, Kiwinet takes pride in ensuring personal and professional service to valued clientele both locally and world-wide. From Traditional Hoopnets to unique Cot Nets, Fitted and Four-Poster Suspended Nets, a Kiwinet elegantly envelopes any lifestyle space creating romantic and sublime sleep sanctuaries.
From humble beginnings, the business has grown to become a highly renowned manufacturer and exporter of top-quality mosquito nets.
Kiwinet is a truly proud “Made in South Africa” success story.
