Kumari’s latest offering Haute Edit is a design-led curated online store hyper-focused on “creating experiences”.
Haute Edit features a unique collection of ethically sourced, handcrafted artisanal finds, one-of-a-kind curiosities and bespoke fashion, ceramics, homeware and interior treasures that carry a story and soul.
Kumari loves a collaborative conversation and works closely with small communities of artisans and women in craft from all over the world to design and create products exclusive to Haute Edit.
Created from a profoundly instinctual space, Haute Edit celebrates Kumari’s love for art, respect for age-old techniques and heritage craftsmanship.
Haute Edit honours the artisanal touch that breathes soul and love into every piece.
We value the rarity, authenticity, tradition and heritage of each craft.
There is a rareness and soul found in traditional artisanship that surpasses luxury.
Haute Edit proudly supports Slow Design.

Founder & Styleologist
Meet Kumari Govender – Haute Edit’s Curator of Style.
Over the last 15 years, Kumari Govender has brought her core values of responsible fashion, wise investment and savvy positioning to multiple avenues – including the pop-up boutique space in South Africa, event tie-ups, cult fashion branding and the realm of dining and travel etiquette.
Her style philosophy is simply to empower, inspire and uplift.
“Style is a very significant part of my client’s identity, and she expects Haute Edit to help her express herself, serving as a lifestyle partner. In this e-commerce era, shoppers are inundated with product options and seek instead to feel inspired or community-centred by offerings that speak to their broader needs and passions.
By offering a superior service, private shopping experiences and VIP events, Haute Edit extends our reach and creates new opportunities to integrate our brand into our client’s hearts with product choices that highlight our brand’s commitment to sustainability and slow design.” – Kumari Govender, Founder, hauteedit.com, South Africa
