Decorative use of wire in South Africa dates back hundreds of years, and its modern equivalent takes the form of brightly colored plastic-coated copper, more commonly known as telephone wire. Prominent South African designer Marisa Fick-Jordaan started Zenzulu out of a desire to create eco-friendly, fairly traded products, while also providing mentorship to unemployed South African women. She first began working with five weavers from a squatter camp outside Durban, and today Zenzulu supports the work of 300 weavers, of whom 80 percent are women and the sole income providers for their families.

Always helpful, original, unique, and just wonderful. They are rare in that there is nothing they will not do to satisfy a customer. They set the bar for excellence and service. Their product is special and you will not find it elsewhere. Rye is truly fortunate to have such good ambassadors.
