ABOUT

Jade Paton fell in love with the ancient art of macramé – a form of textile-making using knotting while visiting California. Macramé traces its roots to thirteenth-century Arabic weavers, and was a popular pastime for sailors who used their rope knotting skills for decorative and meditative purposes. Jade is particularly interested in using this technique in unconventional and creative ways, playing with scale, colour and unusual materials, to push the boundaries of the craft. Her taste is contemporary, while being inspired by both her African and European heritage. She has worked in the field of fashion, interiors and installation environments – having received commissions for projects including fashion week, product launches, restaurants, events and window displays.


After completing her fine arts degree with a major in sculpture at the University of Cape Town, she went on to work at her family's florist, which led to her discovering a medium that combined her loves for design, craft and nature. House of Grace was founded in 2015, and has grown into a flourishing business, which supports the local economy. All pieces are meticulously and intimately hand crafted, with each item being unique.
