Klein PikkewynMy name is Chanzelle van der Linde, I am driven by passion and therefore I took my love for children and my passion for interior and combined the two to start my own company called Klein Pikkewyn Bedding and Accessories. I absolutely love being creative and being behind my sewing machine.  It’s like therapy to me, and as every mom has a unique idea for their baby’s room I get to work on something different every day – which helps with the creative juices!  I feel incredibly blessed to be able to do what I love, and remind myself of that every day.  I took a sewing course two years ago and I was transformed, I absolutely fell in love with creating beautiful things with my hands.  I am also currently finishing up my studies for Interior Decorating at DSSA in Menlyn.  I am married to an amazing man who has made all the dreams I didn’t even know about come true.
