You heard it! I’m relocating to Japan for a year or more.
Meaning that I will be putting my life’s craft ::
orders on hold until I get back to SA… if I come back and yes, I do have mixed feelings about this 😋

So this August is the last month to place any orders with me🤍
Otherwise you will still be able to find some of my creations at whilst I’m away.

With love Kelly Wild ###

Her divine beauty surrounds us
- - -

The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only paradise we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need, if only we had the eyes to see - Edward Abbey

Life is a series of spontaneous & natural changes. As the new year begins, so does a new chapter for WTD - hence my absence for this space ☼

I’m moving my studio to my home in Uvongo inviting a fresh energy & space for my studio and WTD will be expanding towards supporting other local natural lifestyle crafters here too. 🍃

My new range of offerings will include a variety of handmade clothing, home decor and self-care products made and curated by myself and locally sourced traditional basketry handwoven by lovely, talented Zulu women here on the Hibiscus coast!

Appointments and consultations for custom orders may be booked by appointment through me here or my online store (in the process of being updated).

I’m so excited to see where this new horizon will guide me but for
now… Stay Wild, free & golden and remember there is beauty in transience 🌞 ###

Our Story

Seduced by the Art of Creating:

Tapping into the art of detail: embracing the anomalies, fluidity, bleeds, boldness and subtle intricacies infused into the woven natural textures of the h**p textiles. Here we discover the mysterious beauty of the transient and inconsistent nature of earthiness through resist dying techniques transformed into one-of-a-kind accessories, home-decor and apparel.
