Testimonial by Janet


Subject: Pillows

I’ll tell you an unbelievable story about Makoti and my second pillow.

I took my youngest daughter ice-skating at Grand West (almost 20 years ago) and as we were leaving, I saw that there was a Makoti stall. I stopped and chatted and didn’t have enough cash on me and you insisted that I take the pillow and do an EFT when I got home!!
I was hesitant and said how can you be so trusting of me. The long and the short is, of course I honoured your faith and goodwill!

I’ve never received such generosity of spirit elsewhere!!

Subject: Neck PIllows

Thank you.

Subject: Testimonial of purchased Makoti products - Annamarie Serrao

Dear Rudy,

We spoke telephonically last week and you asked me for a testimonial regarding the Makoti products I bought from you.

This is my story.

In December 2018, I was doing some shopping in Walmer Park shopping centre, when I passed your Makoti shop and the pillows on display were beckoning me to come in and have a look.

I was looking for new decent pillows as my old ones were on their last straws and I could not resist walking into your Makoti shop and feel the soft pillows. I was immediately hooked and bought two down pillows (one for my husband and one for myself).At home we normally use two pillows each and we each chose the best of our old ones and stacked the new down pillow on top.We were blown away that night with the luxurious, soft feeling of our heads disappearing into these soft pillows. I was hooked!!There and then I promised myself that I had to buy more Makoti products! I had my eye on a down duvet for the Winter.

In April 2019, after a few cold snap days and nights in Jeffreys Bay, my mind was made up, I must buy a Makoti down duvet! So I promptly made my way to Walmer Park shopping centre and came to your shop asking your advice.You advised a Makoti down Autumn duvet and although I was surprised with your suggestion of an Autumn duvet when I wanted a Winter duvet, you explained that here at the coast our nights are not as cold as the high altitude areas.I followed your advice and bought a Goose Down Autumn duvet! You asked me to give you a report the following day after sleeping under this very special duvet. This was my comment to you!‘Hi Rudy, just a note to say we were ‘down’ and out like a ‘goose’ at Christmas last night! The new Autumn Goose Down duvet was very cosy and it was difficult to get out of bed this morning. Thank you, that was a snug buy!’

Last week (two months after my purchase) you phoned and asked whether we were still happy with our Makoti products.I only have a lot of praise for these products! I could honestly say that the duvet is so warm and snug and it only takes a few seconds after getting into bed, for the wonderful warm feeling to hug your body!We had to go to Pretoria the previous week and we really missed our warm bed!!Another wonderful attribute of these products is the fact that you can only shake them out briefly in the morning and the original fluffy, full and comfortable look is back immediately! So inviting to jump straight back into bed!!

I can highly recommend these products to everybody who has a taste for luxurious comfort and soft, fluffy warmth in bed.

I love my down products from Makoti!!!

That is my story Rudy. I hope this will only strengthen the fact that I am very happy with my Makoti down products and will recommend them to everyone!

With kind regards,

Annamarie Serrao

I was SO excited to get my delivery yesterday of all our new goodies. I went to bed early just to luxuriate in it all, and I had the best sleep ever! Love it all.

Thank you!

Testimonial by Julie


Subject: Excellent service

Hi Sonja

My pillows arrived today!

Many thanks, once again, for your fabulous service.

It is a rare thing to find a company who take such care to keep a customer updated on the process, from chasing up with the post office, to ensuring that my requirements were met, to offering a more affordable option (ie re-using existing down products) and to finally ensuring the safe delivery of the finished items. This is all over and above the fact that you make wonderful high quality products.

With huge appreciation


Testimonial by Pam


Subject: Feeling spoilt!

Dear Anna-Marie

Apologies for the late reply. Wanted to thank you for responding so rapidly to my request for the return of my original Makoti duvet carry bag. I received it within days of speaking to you.

Thanks again and regards

Subject: Replacement Pillow

I bought the best pillow of my life from your exhibition at a show in Cape Town… must be at least FIFTEEN years ago! It just can’t last any longer, sadly, and I need to replace it urgently!
I have test-driven umpteen other makes, but none come close to this one.
Do you have any Agents in Somerset West where I live… or maybe in Cape Town?

Testimonial by Lorraine Marincowitz


Subject: Dankie

Hullo Monique, Dankie vir jou navraag.
Ek is baie tevrede met my aankope by julle.
Die somer duvet wat julle vir my gemaak het uit 2 kleiner duvets is prakties, netjies gemaak en heerlik lig.
Die strooi kussings is die gemaklikste kussings wat ek nog ooit gebruik het.
.Dis die regte grote genoeg opgestop om jou gemaklik te laat sit, en nie in die versoeking is om dit op die vloer te sit nie.
Julle diens was flink en die aflewering was soos dit bespreek was.
Maw ek is baie bly ek het na baie jare se gebruik van julle produkte weer besluit om dit wat ek nou nodig het by julle te bestel.


Testimonial by Lesley


Re: Feather Bed

Dear Monique,

No words can express my gratitude for your kind generosity. No one has ever done this sort of thing for me before. For the first time in years I slept well and in the morning I was able to get up and walk with a straight, pain free back. I will promote your wonderful products to all my friends in the future.

Many, many thanks


Testimonial by Kate


Subject: Feedback from a happy customer!

I thought you might like some feedback from a happy customer. Thank you both. Brett says his new sleeping bag is fantastic. He was a bit concerned that it wouldn’t be long enough or big enough for him to kick about in his sleep but he says it has been great. Perfect coziness for what he needed. We would like to be able to order a zip together pair of extra large bags sometime in the future if you make custom items. Many thanks again especially for going the extra mile to get the bag out to us.

Testimonial by Arlene


Subject: Prompt service!

Firstly I want to thank you on your prompt service, and secondly I want to congratulate you on the production of such a wonderful product that you offer the public. My old pillows were flat and badly in need of a service (when parcelling them up to you I was quite ashamed at their condition) but I was delighted when I opened the parcel that was sent to me. Fresh beautiful pillows were inside.

Since Saturday I have been sleeping on Could 9, like a dream and most definitely like a baby – no stiff neck – no sore throat from sleep on my back with my mouth open and snoring Once again thank you
Kind regards to you and your staff.

I received my order this morning and have to tell you I’m super impressed with it and how quickly it got here. I’m still in shock. I will be shouting your praised to all my friends over here. Thank you so much. I’m really glad I meet your company all those years ago at a garden and home show in Durban.

Well done on good products and service delivery internationally.

Subject: Thank you!

Hi Anna-Marie and the Makoti Family

Thank you so much for the 2 single duvets we received today. We are very pleased with the covering and the cleaning of the feathers and down. You have done an excellent job of which you can be very proud. We will always recommend your products to others as your workmanship is of a very high standard. We have had a double down duvet from you for years (had it renewed a couple of years ago) and it is still as good as new.

Subject: Faultless service

I purchased a 3/4 duck down duvet and duvet set from your stall at the homemakers expo.

The service I received was excellent. Your salesman was friendly and he knew his product well and advised me on what I should buy and looking back now, his advice was perfect.

I can't fault anything about the service.

Because of your salesman's advice I am extremely happy with the product as it perfectly suits what I needed, your product is of a very high standard.

Keep doing what you do best and you will have my support for a long time.

King Regards

Thank you for your wonderful service! I received my blue slippers this morning, just in time for this bitterly cold weather!

Testimonial by Kathy Eales


Subject: Lovely pillows!

I have even more respect for your pillows after unpicking the seam of one of your neck pillows this week to make a travel pillow.

I've been using one of your pillows for the past six years - the one with the extra padding for the new. It's ruined me for anything else, but I sleep so well.

It's getting a little flat and soft, so I recently treated myself to a new one. I bought a firmly firm one, but found it over-full and uncomfortable; so this week I opened it up so that I could remove some of the feathers and put them in a small travel panel.

Not so easy. The seams take a bit of undoing - and then I realised what the reason was: all that extra stitching is because the pillow is lined with a layer of soft down! Wow!

So now I have two reworked pillows - one, a small pillow for travelling so I can cope with the outside world without my regular pillow, and a regular pillow that now works.

I am SO impressed with the quality of workmanship of Makoti pillows!

Well done on not compromising.

Testimonial by Johan vd Westhuizen


Subject: Uitstekende diens

Ek uiters tevrede is met die slaapsak (Lynx reghoekig) wat ek in November 2012 by Makoti aangekoop het. Ek het dit reeds baie dikwels in die afgelope twee maande as slaapsak en ook as duvet (oopgerits) gebruik en dit is regtig 'n besonder ligte en praktiese slaapsak. Vir my is dit ook heeltemal warm genoeg en die materiaal van die binnevoering en die buitekant is heerlik sag.

Ek is baie in my skik met my slaapsak en het dit ook reeds aan 'n heel paar mense gewys wat daarin belangstel. Baie dankie vir jul uitstekende diens en gaan voort om sulke goeie produkte te lewer. Ek beveel dit by al my vriende aan.

Subject: Makoti Baadjie

Graag wil ek net dankie se vir julle goeie en flinke diens met die maak van die tweede baadjie. - my man het die eerste baadjie wat te groot was vir my, vir hom geneem.

Die kwaliteit en snit van die baadjies moet ook genoem word. Dit dra baie lekker en lyk regtig goed.

Die baadjies is voorwaar 'n baie goeie belegging en ek kan dit met vrymoedigheid aanbeveel vir enige iemand wat 'n lekker warm en liggewig baadjie nodig het.

Testimonial by Johan Scheepers


Subject: Makoti service

I became a fan of your products a few years ago when I purchased my first two pillows from you.

I ordered another two in December for my holiday home. You replied very quickly that you were out of stock till January but we then changed the order to pillows that you had in stock and within a few day they were delivered to my holiday home – truly excellent service!

I think I’ve become a bit of an ambassador for you as I tell everyone who battle (like I do) with finding the ‘right’ pillow to try your products. I wish your company everything of the best for the future and hope that you will be around for many many years to come.

Julle produkte en werk is regtig puik en dit is die mooiste materiaal wat julle gebruik. Dit is regtig net 'n plesier om onder julle donskomberse te slaap.

Gedurende die wintermaande gebruik ek net die Herfsduvet en gedurende somermaande ruil ek dit om vir die Somerduvet.

Nogmaals baie dankie vir julle puik produkte, dit was die beste beluit wat ons geneem het om ons donskomberse te laat oordoen by julle.

Baie dankie en vriendelike groete uit Namibia.

Dear Anna-Marie

My King plus extra length Makoti duvet inner is one of the best investments I have ever made. Thank you.

Thanks too for sending me the info on the NON-allergenic properties of pure down as opposed to synthetics. Providing the scientific evidence was the only way I could convince my husband to keep the duvet inner, and that it wasn’t the cause of his flu-like symptoms.

Subject: All Seasons Duck Down Duvet

Last Friday I purchased the All Seasons Duck Down Duvet at the Decorex Cape Town show. It is absolutely wonderful – warm, light, puffy, comforting and I could go on forever. Luckily, our weather has turned nasty and we had a Public Holiday, so I have been getting the FULL benefit of it. I have not wanted to get out of bed since putting it on! It definitely goes down as being my best purchase ever and my dogs agree wholeheartedly!

Subject: Slaapsakke

Hallo Julle,

Ek kyk vandag na julle website om te sien wat julle nou alles aanbied en wat 'n verrassing!!!!! Ons het in 1996 tien slaapsakke van julle bestel en gebruik dit nou nog. Julle diens was destyds al baie puik. Ons het "custom made" slaapsakke laat maak vir ons Pofadder staptog destyds. Geen koue nag het ons oorval nie. Ek en my man het ons slaapsakke aanmekaar gerits en wat 'n lekker snoesige bed het ons gehad onder die oop hemel!!!! As julle produkte toe al van so 'n hoë gehalte was, kan ek net dink dis nou fantasmagories!!!! Sodra ek genoeg geld gespaar het, sal ek definitief van julle kussings bestel. Doet zo voort!!!!!

Subject: Wonderful Neck Pillow

The Owner

I was recently visiting my mom in an old-age home in Uitenhage. Normally when this happens I stay with my sister and we enjoy walking around and then visiting all the shops we think is worthwhile. As you well know there aren’t many of those in Uitenhage! We made a turn at Makoti and what an experience!

We strolled through the shop looking at all the things they had to offer and chatting away with the lady in the store. As we are forever looking for some decent and good quality pillows, this was my main attraction. I soon realized that the one type of pillow looks very different from the others and again the lady explained and I decided to try out two of these neck pillows.

I have a chronic neck – the kind they blame on the age you know (53years) and osteoporosis or whatever they like to call it. I have had two whip lashes which were not treated because of various circumstances and a lot of neck injuries which only started to give discomfort and pain in later years. The only time I was without pain was when I took something for it like painkillers etc. So you must know that it is always painful and coming in different grades.

Well, getting home, I slept on this “firm” unfamiliar pillow. What an adjustment, because I normally enjoy a softer pillow. Next morning my neck felt better, but still painful. So persevered and believe me my neck feels so good, that I now want to tell everybody with neck problems about your neck pillows! My neck is still sore but in a more firm manner and where I would have considered an operation in the past I would now feel this to be absolutely unnecessary.

I do not explain this to be a cure, but it brings tremendous comfort and now I am more conscious of my neck’s position during the day and I feel so much better

Makoti can really market this neck pillow far more so that people can get more aware of this wonderful product. I myself was on the verge to buy one of these R700 advertised pillows! Thank you so much to my sister taking me to Makoti instead.

NB. My husband is a terrible snorer!! Since he is sleeping on this neck pillow, the snoring is also better. I think it is because his head is lying in a more normal position. HE IS STILL SNORING, BUT MUCH MUCH SOFTER!

I wanted to write to you so that you can help other people with the same problem.

Ek het nou onlangs my ma in die oue te huis op Uitenhage besoek. Ek gaan dan sommer by my suster tuis. Gewoonlik loop ek en sy heerlik rond en dan neem sy my na die moeite werd winkels toe. Soos u weet is daar nie baie op Uitenhage nie.Ons het by Makoti 'n draai gemaak en hier is my ondervinding!

Het heerlik in die winkel rond gesnuffel en met die dame gesels. Siende dat ons altyd opsoek na gehalte kussings is het ek die kussings goed staan en bekyk. Ek merk toe op dat die een tipe kussing anders lyk. Weer die dame laat verduidelik en besluit toe om twee nekkussings te probeer.

Ek het 'n kroniese seer nek - die soort wat hulle se dis maar van ouderdom ( 53 jaar) en osteoartritus of so iets noem. Het al twee "whip lashes" (hoop ek spel dit reg) weg wat onbehandel was agv omstandighede en 'n hele lot nekbeserings wat my eers later jare begin pla het. My nek is net nie seer as ek iets vir die pyn drink nie. So weet dit is altyd net in verskillende grade pynlik.

Wel, by die huis gekom, slaap ek toe die eerste aand op die "firm" meneer. Was 'n aanpassing, want ek hou van 'n sagter kussing. Volgende oggend was my nek beter, maar nog seer. So aan gegaan en glo my my nek voel so goed dat ek graag vir almal met nekke dit wil se. My nek is nog "seer" maar op meer 'n stywe manier en waar ek eers 'n operasie sou oorweeg het sou ek dit nou as oorbodig beskou.

Ek verkondig dit nie as 'n kuur nie, maar dit bring geweldig baie verligting en as ek nou let op my nek se posisie deur die dag, voel ek stukke beter.

Julle kan gerus die nekkussing meer adverteer sodat mense daarvan bewus kan word. Ek self was op die punt om weer een van die geadverteerde kussings teen R700 te probeer! Dankie tog my sus het my na julle geneem.

PS My man is 'n hewige snorker!! Vandat hy op die nekkussing slaap is die snorkery ook beter. Ek dink dit is omdat sy lugpyp ook meer in normale posisie le. HY SNORK NOG, MAAR SAGTER!

Ek wou graag aan julle skryf sodat julle ander persone met dieselfde probleem kan help.

Goeie dag,

MAKOTI!!! Baie baie dankie vir julle wonderlike produkte, onvoortreflike diens, hulpvaardigheid en veral julle "commitment" om jul kliente se belange eerste te stel. Ek (skaam om te erken), kan soms veeleisend wees, maar julle het my gehoor, en sonder om vies te raak, vir my gehelp om die mees perfekste duvet te maak!!! Dit is ongelooflik. Julle het 'n Makoti-verslaafde klient. Dankie ook aan jul bemarker in die Kaap (Landie Basson) wat net so baie geduld het. Julle produkte het nie 'n gelyke nie!!

Subject: You offer nothing but excellence!

To whom it may concern:

First of all, I would like to commend you on such service that offers nothing but excellence. At one stage I gave up on the kindness of the human race, but people like you, offer hope that there are those who are truly out to serve others.

I cannot accept that the duvet you did for us was for nothing, so please find attached proof of payment of the outstanding R80.00 (Invoice Number 34452).

Thank you and God Bless!

Ek het my kombers gekry en wat 'n fees. Dit is ongelooflik lig en só snoesig en warm!! Hier by ons in die Vrystaat was dit die afgelope week elke nag tussen -3 en -6 en ek kon nie wag om in my bed te kom nie. Baie dankie vir jul flinke diens. Ek het al by heelparty van my vriendinne gespog en daar is baie belangstelling.

Groete. Lenette de Wet.

Subject: Congratulations on your superb product,

Last year I bought the "summer duvet" from your stand at the Windhoek Show.

I had discussed adding the autumn one with the lady on duty and was going to return to the show to do so. Unfortunately a severe bout of flu prevented me from doing so.

I am quite enthralled with the excellent quality of the product bought. I come from overseas and eiderdowns have always been part of my life in fact I would be unable and quite unwilling to sleep under anything else.

I am so impressed with the excellent quality and lightness of the product.

Congratulations on your superb product,

Cathy Blatt
