The Werf Pop Up
Welcome to Makemba, our first pop up tenant
As the world comes to terms with the ‘new normal’, Imhoff Farm is proud to present their latest pop up retail concept. The Werf Pop Up is a desirable shopping destination to suit the ever-changing needs of local businesses.
Lockdown has not slowed the growth of Imhoff Farm, conveniently located on the Cape Point tourism route. The team has been hard at work with structural upgrades, welcoming new tenants and setting up the newly launched Werf Pop Up, all offering something fresh for visitors to look forward to.
The Werf Pop Up is a space geared towards artisans and entrepreneurs who predominantly operate online and at markets or find themselves moving away from traditional retail spaces. The space appeals to businesses wanting to professionally merchandise their products, interact with locals and tourists, all while retaining flexibility in terms of the duration of their stay. Perfectly positioned in Kommetjie, Imhoff Farm offers a unique trading environment, with a medley of much-loved restaurants, resident artisans, shops and experiences for the whole family to enjoy.
To kick off the opening of the pop-up space, Imhoff Farm warmly welcomes Makemba. Taking residency for the month of July, Makemba is a nomadic bohême designer collection of limited-edition artisanal jewelry and clothing. Founded by Jodi Jade, Makemba’s vision is to preserve ancient textile and jewelry craftsmanship. Merging tribal designs and materials into a new age range, the brand supports the work of indigenous tribes and artisans worldwide.
The Makemba offering includes exquisite silver and brass jewelry, designed and curated by Rodrigo Salazar Castro, an extraordinary artisan from Mexico. Jodie Jade creates gorgeous macrame pieces, each a labour love that weave together her passion for travel and the handmade. Bespoke pieces from the unique leather collection are handmade by a Zimbabwean artisan, while the clothing range caters to slow fashion aficionados and lovers of tribal art. The clothing collection is expertly crafted from natural fibres of Indian hand loomed cottons, West African mudcloth and hand block prints.
Be sure to pop by and browse Makemba’s unique selection of artisanal accessories and apparel. Make a day of it and explore the Imhoff farmyard; grab a coffee and essentials from the deli or let the kids play while you enjoy a delicious meal at one of the restaurants. There is a shop to explore and an experience for everyone to enjoy at Imhoff Farm!
