What Our Clients Say
We have worked with Ronel Jordaan since the very inception of both our Southern Guild gallery in 2008, and our export agency for artisanal homeware to international retailers, Source 2004, and she has remained an integral participant in a diverse range of developments, projects, programmes and large-scale order fulfilment since then.
Ronel is a true collaborator, design thinker and problem solver – bringing not just superb craftsmanship and original ideas to any commission or project, but a hands-on approach to finding the best way to go about it. We have worked together on numerous prestigious projects, including the over-scaled conceptual animal creations for Porky Hefer’s Endangered collection to benefit the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and his Plastocene collection for the NGV addressing sea pollution. The latter included a 16m wide Octopus made from gigantic felted “cigarette butts”, which required a true out-of-the-box approach and incredible attention to detail not to mention stamina, resourcefulness and dedication under gruelling deadlines.
Ronel and her team of artisans are utterly committed to quality, innovation, transformation all the while producing elegant and timeless design objects that transcend trend.
My agency “arts, interior” was founded in 2002 with the purpose to market art and handmade, ethical design with an authentic story B2B in Germany.
The first Rock that I bought in 2004 is still in my Showroom and looks stunning. The Rock Cushion collection became a design classic over the years, and has been supplied to Furniture Stores, MuseumsShops, Interior Designers for Projects and even Event Agencies. The quality is excellent and the timeless design, inspired by nature, remains an eyecatching pleasure.
I have bought several items from Ronel Jordaan before. Having had more than 30 years experience in the textile industry, it is refreshing to find local products of exceptional quality and design. Ronel is a true artist and I will always support her. Thank you for excellent service. I wish you all the best in years to come.
There is no question that Ronel Jordaan is our favorite artist and easily our best-selling one.
Her work is beautiful, unique, and of the highest quality. We adore the textures, colors, and unparalleled craftsmanship of each individual piece not to mention the endless possibilities that she is capable of in her custom work.
Ronel and her team are so thoughtful, patient, and amazingly creative that it is very much a real pleasure to work with them. We are so grateful to have been able to carry and showcase her collection in our showroom at the San Francisco design center for the last 7 years.
Ronel’s soft furniture and home decor objects are definitely conversational pieces in any room and will bring happiness to every home.
