Q+A: Ebony & Ivory Ribbons

Ebony & Ivory Ribbons is a magical company, that sells lovilee gifts + décor as well as loads of perfect items to enable you to wrap gifts to look more lovilee than the gift itself and so much more! I am a great fan of the company and order on-line from them on regular basis. Their Facebook page makes for interesting following, as the frequently provide creative tips and gift wrapping ideas.



Q: Who are the creatives behind the business?
Eulalia + I {Igna} started Ebony & Ivory 8 years ago over a cup of coffee when floor space became available in their family business. Our growth has been totally organic and we’ve adjusted and adapted many times according our own dreams and as well to the demands of our customers.


Q: Why the name ‘Ebony & Ivory’?
Eulalia’s background is mainly business management and antiques and I’m a designer + artist by trade. Together we form the perfect team – her strengths are my weaknesses and vice versa. She’s the brunette and I’m the blonde (don’t read anything into that!), her initial is “E” and mine is “I”- hence the name Ebony & Ivory.


Q: What are the products + services that you offer?
We have a gorgeous little shop in Diep River, Cape Town where you can find just about anything. We describe ourselves as “Purveyors of Vintage-inspired Merchandise” so most of the products in our shop has a vintage flair. We have old things, new things, handmade things and also a whole range of goodies that we design and produce ourselves. These are mainly ribbons, pin buttons and a variety of paperie products.


Q: Where can your products be purchased from?
Most products can be purchased on-line, but we have a lot of fantastic goodies in the shop that’s just not mail-friendly, so a visit is a must!
