About Kokskraal Handcrafts

Kokskraal Handcrafts originated as a job-creation project on a farm near Cookhouse in the Eastern Cape, due to the willingness of the Xhosa-women to generate an income by making use of their talents.

This project started as a hobby in November 2001. Living on a farm the wives of the labourers have a very limited chance of generating an income.

Therefore we started developing their skills. This not only improved their human dignity, but gave them a chance to create something beautiful they can be proud of, as well as earning money to be more independent.

We proudly present these items, because we are proudly South African.

Kokskraal Handcrafts received an award as Global Micro-Entrepreneur in 2005 from Citigroup and the United Nations.
