South Africa is incredibly rich in amazing crafts. On sale on many a street corner, from Johannesburg to Cape Town and Durban to Bloemfontein, these beautiful handmade pieces are much sought after.
Some can be traced back from various indigenous traditions including Zulu. They demonstrate intricate bead work which is thought once to have been the insignia of tribal royalty. Today these handmade artifacts have found their way into many of our daily lives in a variety of guises. African craft is a thriving market, providing much needed employment throughout South Africa.
The Gift of Beads is delighted to be able to offer for sale just a few of these wonderful handmade items, which include colourful alicebands, a variety of beaded purses, unisex caps, novelty pens and some traditional street beaded salad servers and teaspoons, all from our South African partners.
