Zulu women creating ethically sourced cowhide products

There is a great deal to tell you about the characters of the talented artisans we work with at Zulucow. We are so proud to be helping to create sustainable employment in rural South Africa. Our team of expert craftswomen are the lifeblood of the Zulucow brand. Therefore, we believe in compensating them fairly for their incredible work.

Every time that you purchase a Zulucow Cowhide product, you’re helping to provide desperately needed jobs to talented artisan women. Our incredible team then help support their entire communities.

I’ve worked with Ma Phillipine, Nelly, Thandi, Gloria, Lindiwe and the rest of the artisan team, for nearly 10 years and often go out to see them. On my last visit, I spoke to Thandi. She is one of the very talented craftswomen and in this video she explains how vital these jobs are for survival.
