Introducing our #whoswho series
Did you know - Crafters Market supports over 100 local businesses all over South Africa.
During the COVID-19 crisis these businesses have come to a halt resulting in a loss of income for many.
By supporting a local business you are supporting a dream, a community and making an impact on bettering our economy. #SupportLocal
If you walk into one of our 11 stores and purchase products you might not know that you are supporting a family, a community or even a village.
We are very passionate about craftsmanship and the empowerment of Malagasy artisans as well as contributing to the South African economy.
Our model cars, airplanes and motorcycles are entirely handmade from recycled materials such as cool drinks cans, food tins, air freshener cans etc.
During #Lockdown while we are unable to open our doors we urge you to consider the positive impact you will make by #SupportingLocal after lockdown.
The Kingdom of Heart & Soul
Amarasti is a small company situated in the Kingdom of Eswatini.
Founded 2003, it started out as a hobby, with only one woman making hand embroidered cushions. Today, things look quite different.
The business now employs about 40 women, empowering them to become financially independent and self-sufficient.
Each week these lovely ladies travel far to the Amarasti workshop to collect their assigned projects and return their creations from the previous week.
Working from home allows these women to maintain their households, fetch firewood, collect water and at the same time earn an income to support their families.
