People are trained in the art of handweaving to produce beautiful handwoven rugs and fabrics, and the weavers are encouraged to come up with their own designs. Everything is handmade so each item has its own unique signature.

The weavery is open to the public and has become a sought after tourist attraction in Barrydale. If you are planning a trip on Route 62, make sure you pop in and see the looms in action, hear the stories of how it all happens and admire the range of pure cotton, handwoven home décor.

Guests are welcome to wander through the hotel to examine the owner’s permanent collection, discover the thought-provoking and playful work of graffiti artists, or browse and select an artwork souvenir from the walls or grounds of the hotel. Exhibitions are regularly updated, and the aim is to delight and challenge in equal measure.

The work is curated, but they are always looking for new talent.

Recently re-branded, the Karoo Art Hotel is a little country hotel that showcases and celebrates art in a big way. Every room in the hotel is individually decorated, part of it by internationally-renowned design collective, Magpie Collective. Aside from the eye-catching interiors and artworks, much of it for sale, the art of wine-making is celebrated with one of the best wine lists in South Africa.

In the past 4 years it has firmly established itself as the home of Klein Karoo’s best live music events.
