All of us who work here at !Khwa ttu – and the people who support our project - believe that San-owned businesses and initiatives are crucial in order to alleviate the severe poverty that most San have to live with every day.
Therefore !Khwa ttu offers the San craftsmen of Southern Africa an attractive outlet for their products. Some of the most beautiful pieces which you can find at the crafts shop are made from ostrich eggshells. For hundred of years the San have produced ostrich eggshell jewellery using only simple hand tools. This is an extremely slow and laborious process which requires a great deal of skill. In our shop you can purchase the most up-to-date designs as well as traditional pieces; such as stunning necklaces, bracelets, wraps and bags. We also offer San paintings, bow and arrows, wooden carvings and many more items.
We ensure that we apply fair trade practices in all of our contracts with our San crafts people and artists.
