A lot of thought went in when I decided to create Altarnatief. I love the play with words and Afrikaans makes it so easy and so much fun. Coming from a very alternative family - parents, grandparents, cousins, uncles and aunts including well known Afrikaans writer Dalene Matthee.
It is almost a natural flow of events with a name Alta to name my company Altarnatief. They all played a phenomenal roll in my life. Inspiration also came from the following words and especially their deeper meaning - Alta/ALT/Alto/Altimeter/Alterego/Alta Fiords/Alto Rouge wine and so I can go on. Altarnatief grew from Alta's journey of knowing who you are and speaking your own truth. And that it is OK to be a rebel, that it's Ok to think differently and do differently and please follow your heart! In Sound of Music Mother Superior said to Maria - “My child live the way you were born”.
The words from Time, narrated by Laurence Olivier - “For as a human being you are free to will whatever state of being you desire through the use of your thoughts and words. There is great power there”. The greatest gift is to get to a place in yourself that you really love what you do, you are excited about what you do and in the process touch people's lives. We want to inspire people to stay true to who they are, dare to be different, embrace your uniqueness and celebrate life and who you are. Live from a place of inspiration not motivation. Do what makes your heart sings. Be Creative! Play!
Altarnatief consists of Deur die Blare Floral Art that is their Florist division and then there are four product ranges GraBag, PENPEL, Altasaam and Pretty Penguin Project. They are all Alta's brainchild and was born from her love for design, bright colours and practicality. She believes something should not just be beautiful it should be practical too.
