About dishy designs

Hi, I am Verena and my business is dishy designs. dishy designs specialises in locally made tea towels or dish cloths as many South Africans call it. Think Table Mountain and Zebra stripes, King Proteas and the Big 5 to name a few. We also recently launched our Paint your own range, ideal for kids and adults alike.

Our products have landed in homes all over the world adding a touch of Africa wherever they go.

dishy designs also make ideal corporate gifts or promotional items. We have worked with wine farms, FMCG brands and wedding coordinators producing unique products for their brands. Contact Verena to discuss your ideas.

Who is Verena?

Since my student days, I’ve been dreaming of running my own creative business.

After studying Public Relations Management, I worked in the corporate world for a couple of years until I was presented with an opportunity to join my dad’s wholesale business. This career move gave me the freedom and time to invest in my dream and dishy designs was born in November 2012.

You will find me selling dishy designs at various markets in and around Cape Town, the Kirstenbosch Market being one of them.

On a more personal note, I live in Cape Town with my husband Patrick and fur-kids, Diesel and Leila. If I’m not working, I’m spending quality time with my other half or family, drinking coffee with a girlfriend, travelling, reading, dancing to the latest beats, or enjoying a home cooked meal.

Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to contact me with any ideas or queries you might have.

dishy wishes,

Verena Stefanie Papsch-Holman
