About Us

Brand Soul

Style Curator and Fashion Maven, Kumari Govender has always been at the forefront of everything stylish. Extending her influence into her own private design label was an instinctual transition.

Kumari’s latest offering Haute Edit is a design-led curated retail experience.

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.
