about Freshly Found is a boutique business based on an ethos. A belief of celebrating the ordinary, finding fresh potential for the jaded and breathing new life into the old. Artisanal expression and handcraft are valued. Denise Kiggan launched Freshly Found in 2007. Since then she has documented the journey and shared inspiration on the Freshly Found blog, designed and created Freshly Found Products and exhibited at the Design Indaba

Freshly Found is delighted to:  support local talent. Crafters and part time workers in the area are involved in hand-making items  selectively choose materials with fresh potential for recycling  inspire others to live an adventurous, ethical, artisan life. Freshly Found trades through an online store. We are based in Durban, South Africa and successfully mail or courier our products worldwide. We are able to tailor make many of our products to meet specific requirements.
