I stumbled across My Little Woods last year while scrolling through my Facebook feed and was totally blown away by the little I saw. I had to take a deeper look and find out more about this company. Why had I never heard about them before? I guess once again it’s all credit and thanks to the wonderful power of Social Media. And it just so happened that my introduction to this wonderful brand was perfectly timed. Having only just launched at the end of last year, it coincided brilliantly with my search for brands to partner with for The Ultimate Collaboration.
What was even more of a pleasant surprise was just how keen and eager Aimee, owner of My Little Woods was to get involved from the get go. She needed very little persuading and jumped on board with both feet, sponsoring a gorgeous table and chairs set seen below.

How beautiful are their dipped table and chairs? They tied all the other features together so perfectly!

We focus on modern trendy furniture items, specifically made from wood. Our goal is to produce high quality, locally made items, made available to you via our convienient online store.
We pride ourselves in bringing you carefully created handmade items manufactured from our Cape Town factory.
Her’es what the lovely Aimee has to say about her new little business venture which, as it turns out is already onto great things!
1. Is this your full time job? If not, what do you do?
Yes, My Little Woods has been my full time job since mid 2016 when the concept was born.
2.How and when was your brand born?
My husband and myself had been toying with the idea of starting a boutique furniture line for a few years. Come 2016 when I decided that I wanted to focus on children’s furniture and decided to pursue this and thus My Little Woods was born!
3. Was it an overnight success or did you experience many teething problems?
No it was not an over night success, it has taken a lot of hard work but the response from the general public and customers has been great. I am constantly learning and growing along my journey.
4. What has been your greatest lesson in the industry? Any tips for people starting out?
I have been humbled by the willingness of other women entrepreneurs to help you succeed along the way. The community of women entrepreneurs and momtrepreneurs in South Africa amazes me, these are people willing to encourage, build and help one another in business. So for anyone starting out I would say network, ask questions and don’t be afraid to ask for help from others in like minded business.
5. As a momtrepreneur what are some challenges you face with having to balance it all – family, work and other commitments?
I’m not a momtrepreneur yet 🙂
6. What is the dominant theme running through your product range? And what is your signature product?
I would say at the moment My Little Woods signature product has to be our popular wooden rocking horse, I absolutely love it! Overall we have a general theme of simplistic, trendy and made from wood items.
7. Who/what are your biggest influences? Or your greatest inspirations? ( I’m guessing your little ones!)
I draw inspiration from global design trends with a keen focus on bringing European style and quality items to the South African consumer.
8. What has been your biggest achievement thus far as a brand?
Hard to say as we are so new, however my highlights have been launching and seeing the public’s positive reaction and the collaborations I have been apart of to date.
9. What are your future hopes for you business?
I hope to create a solid steady business that stays true to our roots in creating the best quality, locally-made items that will last a life time.
Just look at a few of the other products they specialise in………
