A beautiful collection of decorative bowls with striking designs in black,white and yellow wire, handmade by African woman.
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

We have been customers of Sarza since its opening and it is our favorite retail establishment of all time! The style, quality, service and mission of this local shop is beyond remarkable.
