The ABSA Kirkwood Wildsfees will see mohair featured in a way it never has before. With a dedicated mohair exhibition festival-goers will be able to experience the luxury that mohair offers on their doorstep from 29 June – 1 July.
The mohair exhibition will feature an array of gorgeous mohair products for sale, a coffee lounge to relax in and an opportunity to touch Angora Goats. Visitors will be delighted with the variety on offer including pop-up knitting groups as well as an interior design corner featuring the latest international mohair trends. Inspiration can be drawn from the fashion design display from The Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) and Mode University in Japan’s collaborative projects with MSA.
Anle Marais, Marketing Co-ordinator of MSA says, “The ABSA Kirkwood Wildsfees is the Eastern Cape’s fastest growing festival and we see it as a great opportunity to showcase this internationally sought after fibre to the local consumer. A part of growing the awareness of mohair is to showcase the fibre from source to shelf and this festival is an ideal way to help achieve that”.
Visitors can also expect the other activities that they’ve come to know over the years, such as live performances by top South African artists, adrenaline rides, lifestyle expos, specialist stalls, along with agricultural and wildlife expos and so much more.
The MSA tent will be open every day from 09:00 – 17:00.
Accommodation in the area can still be found at the Zuurberg-inn.
