Thank you for your interest in DecoCrate. We are a sister and brother team that manufacture hand-made, hand-painted, vintage-inspired wooden crates for your home. They are perfect for storage of kitchen/pantry items, books, fire wood, toys, and much more. We use pine wood, which comes from a sustainable source in Stellenbosch, and use sturdy manufacturing techniques to ensure a high quality product with user-friendly handholes. Our crates can be stained or painted in almost any colour imaginable, and we aim to make each crate as unique and as beautiful as possible.

Please remember:

  • Wood is a natural product, each piece with it’s own marks and character. No two crates will ever look exactly the same.
  • We aim to keep our sizes (see below) as standard as possible, but slight variations may occur.
  • Also remember that wood can damage easily – please handle with care and your crate should last for many years to come.
  • Courier costs are for your own account.

We don’t keep large quantities of stock, but rather manufacture on demand (payment to be made with placement of order, thank you). Lead time dependant on size of order, and will be confirmed on placement of order.

For more info about prices or to place your order, please send us an email to thefoodfox@polka.co.za . We will send you an order form with all the necessary info you might need. Wholesale options also available.

Thank you!

Ilse van der Merwe

“Spice Libraries” now available!

Handmade wooden "Spice Library" containing glass jars with 16 essential spices.

The festive season is upon us! That means it is time to cook and time to shop! With these fabulous new “Spice Libraries” from The Food Fox, you can now cook up a storm with 16 essential spices in one beautifully handmade wooden spice rack. Your kitchen counter will no longer look like a mess with different spice pots and bags stuffed into a corner – just put your Spice Library on the counter and you are ready to go!

The 16 glass jars contain about 125 ml of essential spices for every kitchen: All spice, black pepper, cardamom, chilli flakes, cloves, cinnamon, coriander, cumin, fennel, garum masala, ginger, nutmeg, paprika, star anise, turmeric and white pepper. They are arranged in alphabetical order and are easy to use with a teaspoon for perfect measuring.

The Spice Libraries cost R400.00 each, and are currently only available on order from me directly at thefoodfox@polka.co.za – I will keep you updated on any confirmed stockists. We are based in Stellenbosch, and will deliver if you live in the area. Otherwise, collection and courier cost are for your own account.

We look forward to receiving your order!
