As you enter the quaint little town of Howick, make sure you stop off at Angels Shoes, 74 Main Street, and discover their impressive range of ladies and men’s leather shoes. Just a little bit of history, Angels Shoes was started in the late 1980’s by James Shankland when he designed and made shoes for his wife whose name was Angel. The shoes and sandals were hand-made from beautiful, soft hand-painted leather. He was one of the first shoemakers in South Africa to use so many different colours of leather on one shoe. He established a niche for a wider fit and his shoe sizes went up to a size 10 for ladies, offering all ladies a vibrant new level of design and comfort. Over time the factory has changed hands and now the manufacturing arm of the business has been outsourced to Corvari Footwear, a family-run business based in Pinetown, Durban. As the owner Tracey Kenyon-Slade says: I am very proud of my Angels brand and know that they really are Heaven for Feet. Come in and say hello any time. If we aren’t open, give us a call and we will be at the shop in 5 minutes to […]

It all began with a dream … family life on a farm somewhere in the Midlands. One Midmar Mile weekend back in 2003, a small farm overlooking the Balgowan Valley with a charming thatch farmstead stole our hearts. Before long plans were underway to start a guest house, a gallery and a coffee shop and live the simple life like all the other locals who shared their worlds with the weekend urban escapists doing the Midlands Meander. Hazel, Jen’s mom came to live on the farm followed by Paul’s parents, Pat and Brian, and sister Sandy, and what followed was a creative journey of building new cottages, renovations, garden designs, planting fields of lavender and rosemary – underneath it all was a burgeoning desire to share the gentle, healing nature of this enchanting place in which we found ourselves, and so the idea of an African Day Spa was born. Over time we have become exclusively a unique spa retreat so that we can focus wholeheartedly on the needs of our guests, whether day spa or staying over. Indigo Fields is our life, it is how we choose to live and so ensuring that you have the most meaningful, worthwhile […]
