About The SoukArtistic anthropology – inspiration from around the globe
The Souk was founded by tireless travellers Emily Lemmon & Simon Carter (AKA, The Carters). Hailing from Cape Town, this couple spend time annually in Europe and Indonesia and in their spare time scour more far-flung locales for objects d’art and event design ideas.
Emily & Simon have drawn inspiration from the aesthetics of different cultures as well as festivals and events. Many of their ideas have sprung from their own wedding which they created in Bali, before going on an adventure through East Africa. Wherever they travel they are always on the lookout for beautiful things to add to the Souk collection.
We worked with our friends Heleen Van Eck (Event planner), Gerrit Olivier (Photographer) and Olivia Kennaway (Designer) to style and shoot the Souk collection.
