What we do:
We import artisanal, original, handmade products from South Africa; that is made in a sustainable and ethical manner. We focus on distributing it to retail shops, interior designers and the hospitality sector. We also have a limited retail offering.
This helps grow small businesses in South Africa, mostly female owned & operated. It also supports many impoverished and rural communities across the country.
We are the link between the South African makers and the Canadian market place. Our suppliers are SMALL enough to offer products that are:
- unique, of a very high quality, ‘not mass-produced’, with ‘customisable options’
Our suppliers are BIG enough to offer products that are:
- Consistent in quality and efficient in the production and communication process.
We make sure all the legal paper work are done and that the products ordered gets to the client in a timely & concisely manner.
