Luminos is the key brand of the Blinds Syndicate. Established in 1996, the Blinds Syndicate started as an experiment in syndicate buying and has grown into a company that sells blinds all over South Africa and in surrounding countries.

Situated north of Durban in Verulam the Blinds Syndicate employs more than 70 people, a huge jump from the original staff complement of seven, a clear indication of the steady growth that the company has experienced over the years.

Our Vision is to be a world class supplier of window coverings (blinds) and allied products.

The Blinds Syndicate is passionate about producing customised blinds that are of the highest quality and workmanship. Attention to detail and superior service give consumers peace of mind. The company also stays on-trend through its constant monitoring of local and international trends in the blinds market and is often first-to-market with innovative and new types of blinds.


Under the Luminos brand, the Blinds Syndicate offers a wide range of blinds to suit different window coverings.
