Artisanal collaboration of 44 Stanley & Victoria Yards comes to Hyde Park Corner

Nov 27, 2019, Author: Hello Joburg

Perfectly timed to bring a plethora of artisanal gifting ideas to shoppers ahead of Christmas, Hyde Park Corner is delighted to welcome VYx44, a collaborative store conceptualised to bring the artisans, makers and designers from arty 44 Stanley and Victoria Yards to the north.


44 Stanley and more recently Victoria Yards have re-invented urban spaces in Johannesburg and brought together local makers and artisans. Although distinctly different, both properties focus on sustainable practices and a return to artisanal craft and making with an increased emphasis on social development. This November, Hyde Park Corner brings these artisans, makers and designers to you.

Opening on 1 November in the month of Hyde Park Corner’s 50th birthday celebrations, YVx44 will be a place to discover fashion and accessories, furniture and décor, craft and design and coffee from Africa’s first Certified Fairtrade, organic coffee roaster.

Housed in a trendy warehouse-like space in a prime location at Hyde Park Corner, YVx44 is a perfect addition to the Hyde Park Corner’s mix of elegant and upmarket stores, restaurants, medical practitioners, aesthetics, movies and experiences.
