Sisters in Craft began with a simple idea – to help a group of woman buy school clothing for the following year.
These ladies epitomise resourcefulness and resilience as life is not easy in rural Northern Kwazulu-Natal where they live. But they are using the crafting skills they all know and love to support their families. Their work is carefully crafted using local materials and everything is hand-sewn. The ladies work in groups and operate like an informal co-operative where they all share in the profits.
Kathy Pitout & Anitha Dlamini started the initiative late 2019 and together with the other sisters decided to make Christmas decorations to sell. After publishing a Facebook post and anticipating to sell a few items to local friends and family, the post was instead shared far and wide and the orders streamed in from all around the world! The ladies could barely keep up with the demand but they worked tirelessly to fulfil every order to the high standard they had promised.
Joining Thusana means they can reach more people and sell throughout the year which will make a massive difference to their monthly income. When you choose to buy a Sisters in Craft product you are helping these wonderful woman improve their lives and reach their dreams of seeing their children finish school and have the opportunity to achieve a tertiary education.
