A Quirky launch
Cape Town is a city of many talents and traits and we absolutely love the innovation around every corner, with this in mind, we welcome I LOVE MY LAUNDRY to our fair city. The laundromat incorporates a trendy wine bar that allows you to sip your succulent wine with friends over some banter while you wait for your laundry to finish. The concept is one that stands out amongst the thorns. We adore this… The entire concept contradicts the ordinary belief of having one main function under one roof, combining at least three. “By definition, a destination laundromat combines at least three otherwise unrelated business facets under one roof,” explains Co-Owner Clayton Howard, who happened upon the concept while on a trip to San Francisco. “The laundry happens behind the scenes, hidden and camouflaged by other more glamorous services on offer in the foreground.” The interior boasts rustic red walls and rugged pops of orange, inspirational art and a solid cement dining table that runs the length of the room. This laundromat is anything but ordinary. It is stylish, convenient and extraordinarily exciting. The launch last night welcomed some amazing brands into the I Love My Laundry Family… LeatherLab is a leather product design studio specialising in quality, custom-made leather accessories and furniture. LeatherLab incorporates branding and design solutions in the manufacturing of our leather products aimed primarily at the hospitality, retail, residential and interior industries. Relax on quirky cushions and indulge in cookies while soaking up the bold colours, and stimulating décor. Drink wine with your friends and enjoy the vibey atmosphere of the Cape Town Streets or ponder over the pretty painting against the red brick walls. This is a chic way to do laundry, it makes us want to do laundry everyday of the week! For those looking for a stylish, unusual spot to host a private dinner party, I Love My Laundry can also be hired out for this purpose. It’s available for private functions every evening after 7pm, except on Wednesdays and Thursdays – just another example of the space’s versatility.
