Tsandza Handweaving began in 1979 as a social enterprise providing skills development and an income source to many rural women. They place great focus on personal growth and well-being. Through their work, the artisans gain greater self esteem and independence, and a stronger voice within their families and communities.

Currently working with around 60 women both workshop and home based, Tsandza offers a unique opportunity for rural women that allows them to earn whilst they learn. A 6 month training programme is run in-house and on the job by senior & master Artisans who have worked with the business for as many as 30 years. The aim upon completion of their “trainee” programme, is that each new Artisan will have the knowledge, and be proficient across all aspects of production methods and materials ensuring that they are able to continue well after there training has finished. It is very important to the business that those Artisans wishing to develop their skills further have the opportunity to do so.

The entire production process is “by hand” with the use of traditional floor looms and spinning wheels. The use of biodegradable dyes , also enables the group to minimise their environmental impact.

Every single scarf is a result of commitment, teamwork and passion, providing customers with an ethically produced , beautiful quality , fashion accessory.
