How KAMERS Came To Be

It all started in 2003, when close friends vacated their home and our new business moved in. We started realizing our dream to provide a platform where creative people come together for inspiration, encouragement and support.

Our first Kamers showcased just 40 suppliers and we had 800 excited visitors. Over the past few years, KAMERS has grown from strength to strength as people have joined our dream, imparted invaluable wisdom and left indelible footprints. In 2013 our three events had 41 600 visitors in total and they are still just as excited about the KAMERS experience.

2012 was a monumental year as we celebrated 10 years of KAMERS and wonderful women, their stories, dreams and growth through creativity. We also added a third annual event in Bloemfontein to our calendar and launched our KAMERS Online Store. With some of the Cape’s most beautiful wine farms and Pretoria and Bloemfontein’s most stylish venues providing the backdrop for recent shows, KAMERS continues to offer a visual and creative feast for the senses.

In 2014 we are excited to add two new exhibitions to our calendar: KAMERS Easter in Joburg and KAMERS & CCDI Trading at the Castle. We are honoured to have the latter officially recognised as part of the World Design Capital Cape Town 2014 programme.

 

 

Philosophy

Share, Support, Believe

The journey with KAMERS as a business has been one of sharing and supporting. We treasure the sisterhood in our team and work hard to offer support on various levels to all our suppliers. We aim to break new ground by innovatively sourcing creative talent and fresh product ideas that are exclusive, creative and retail focused, while offering a nurturing environment and safe space for small businesses to grow.

KAMERS is all about bringing creative people together by sharing and collaborating on ideas, supporting each other through honesty, tolerance and understanding, and believing in all of our ability and creative talent.
