Alet Kotze: A Visionary Artist

Alet Kotze, the creative force behind The Whimsical Duchess, is an accomplished fine art photographer with a passion for capturing the elegance of real flowers and botanicals. Her ability to transform nature’s finest details into breathtaking visual art is at the heart of our brand. Alet’s dedication to her craft and her love for the whimsical and the elegant serve as the driving force behind The Whimsical Duchess.

The Whimsical Duchess is a proudly south African small business and was born out of a deep love for nature, textiles, colour, photography and a simple desire to create beautiful objects.

All our textiles are designed and produced in South Africa, on order. Therefore the turnaround time for your product can be between 2-6 weeks. It is important to remember that with handmade products, one should handle it with the delicate care that one would with any piece of art.

Each of our designs are unique and every photo is captured with great attention to detail. Every flower , fruit or small detail in every design is carefully chosen to create something totally exclusive. There is something special from my home in every photo in hopes of imparting a little bit of the whimsical duchess into each person’s life. “It’s attention to detail that makes the difference between average and stunning”
