SAMESYN is a collaboration between Elmarie Berry (recipe developer / food stylist) and Lindy Kriek (photographer / designer) and their idea of creating unique, food inspired home decor and art for likeminded foodies.
Samesyn is an Afrikaans word meaning “togetherness”.
We believe food brings people and cultures together. The fondest memories are made when gathered around a table. Some designs have a nostalgic feel inspired by family recipes and the memories of baking with our grannies growing up.
All photographs used are original, self styled, and inspired by the love of food.
We love mixing family heirlooms into our photographs to give each piece an unique story and to make it truly South-African. Each piece speaks to each individual and herein lies the magic for us, we are all different but food brings us together.
If you love food, homeware, linen and unique art you have to get yours today! We believe the fondest memories are made around a table and therefore all our designs are a celebration of bringing people together through food.
Create your own unique design with our professional stylist and photographer team, we can’t wait to share all we know.
We will help you style / photograph and edit your own unique design and also give you some tips we have learned in the past 4 years. You bring the props (old photographs, heirlooms, favorite flowers or anything you want in the design), we will also bring some magic “ingredients” to add if you wish to use it!
You will receive a high resolution JPEG file of your own design digitally sent to you after the workshop.A great morning of SAMESYN with creative minds, kindness, sharing and beauty! This is perfect for team building and year end events.
We are welcoming collaborations, creating exclusive designs and product development for individuals and or businesses. Book our Food Photographer & Food Stylist team to create your own unique design.
