Welcome Carpet

Most people notice Route 67's big colourful mosaic next to the Donkin Reserve but doesn't realise that there is another beautiful mosaic right across the green in front of the King Edward Hotel.  The Welcome Carpet was done by Lisbet Demeyer and was one of the first art pieces to be done as part of the Route 67 development.  The mosaic is made up of coloured quartz and bead work and forms a red carpet welcoming visitors to the Donkin Reserve.  The design hints at the cultural context of the Eastern Cape.


  1. I love it! Beautiful and so cheerful.

  2. The Carpeting Specials is produced on a loom
    quite similar to woven fabric. The pile can be plush or berber. Plush Carpeting Specials
    is a cut pile and Berber carpet is a loop pile. There are new styles of carpet
    combining the two styles called cut and loop Laminate Wood Flooring.
    Normally many coloured yarns are used and this process is capable of producing intricate patterns from pre-determined designs.
