30 January 2013 - Award Handover
Nakara carpets Design Competition held in November 2012
Nakara carpets handed over the award for Mr. Leon du Plessis, the Winner of the Design competition. Nakara manufactured a carpet with his winning design. Now the tailor-made carpet was ready for collection for Mr du Plessis at the Nakara factory shop in Somerset West Business Park.
His Design “Stumps” was outstanding amongst all the others in the competition.
It combines nature with art. The colour scheme is very modern, on fashion and still timeless.
