I was delighted to receive an email from Yvette at ArtEsense – an online store which stocks handmade crafts curated from markets and artists in SA. We have such amazing creativity in SA and our craft scene is growing in leaps and bounds, so anyone who supports it and gets the name of the clever crafters behind these creations out there, is awesome in my opinion!
The online store also supports organisations which help local crafters through social upliftment projects and Yvette nurtures a relationship with the makers of the products she stocks. ArtEsense currently stocks Woza Moya Crafts, Jodi Meirings’ Dolly Dinkle from Cape Town and The African Art Centre as well as a few other well-known Durban brands – Terry Angelos, Sue Edgar from Wild@Heart and Barbra Rishworth Jewellery.
