Artisan profile: Meet Anna Mahlangu

8 Aug

I met Anna Mahlangu at Decorex Jo’burg and fell in love with her beautiful necklaces. Anna is from Limpopo and she was supported by the DTI’s South African Handmade Collection to attend. If I remember correctly these necklaces sell for R450 and you can call Anna on 082 582 6381 (Anna speaks English, but she’s more comfortable speaking Afrikaans or isiZulu) or Connita on 079 542 8486 to place your order or get to Decorex today or tomorrow.

You can also contact Sarah Zitha at Siyaphothela Art and Craft on +27 71 518 1404

“Fashion. love, Africa designs and purchases hand knitted bags constructed from post consumer plastic bags gathered and woven by female residents living in the garbage slum of Nakuru, Kenya. Each bag is purchased directly from the woman who constructed it, allowing her a consistent source of income. ”  http://fashionloveafrica.com/
