Handcrafted Home Décor & Gifts from Africa
As an NGO, the crafting of our beautiful items for the body, home and soul, allows the Mothers we work with to become custodians of skills, empowering them to earn a sustainable income.
We love our South African Heritage, so the lovingly handcrafted gifts represent the people, animals and culture of our ancient African Earth & History.
While our creations celebrate life in Africa and the Women that make them, they are also contemporary and perfect for every type of person and gifting occasion.
The Craftsman Plea
The plea which THE CRAFTSMAN wishes to make is for intelligent labor which meets a practical need and which is also productive of beauty, includes the element of play, is more lasting in effect than work unrelated to life because it is the result of enlightened purpose.
It is productive work beyond mere financial returns that we believe will carry the final benefit for the human race."
We believe in long life of products and not in obsolescence. So while we have no control over high winds, any acts of Nature or carelessness, if you care for your heART At Work products responsibly, they should be part of your life for an extraordinarily long time.
All our home decor products are made locally in the Helderberg area just outside Cape Town, South Africa. We believe in Fair Trade, Not Aid and abhor exploitation of any kind.
