What started out as little more than a curiosity in 2014, soon developed into a passion for Georgine Jacobs.
She was taken on an incredible 18 month long journey, developing accent pieces for the home from recycled materials, that would be unique and visually appealing, but also durable and eco-friendly.

In the course of this journey she explored the amazing characteristics of paper, by combining a variety of natural fibres with recycled paper, colouring the raw materials with numerous natural plant dyes, pigments and oxides, and also developing techniques for creating interesting textures.

In 2016, after the development finally culminated in a strong, durable and aesthetically pleasing product range, EnlightenMe Home Décor (Pty) Ltd was founded.

The name EnlightenMe was originally chosen as a play on words, as the very first paper pulp pieces she produced revolved around lamps and lampshades and the archaic meaning of “enlighten” literally means “to light up” or to “illuminate.”
