We started making and selling our craftwork in 2000. Then in 2002, we registered Bonke Crafts cc as a business. We are based in Khayelitsha (Town Two to be precise). We started with just R20 in our pockets, and bought a bottle of beads for R10.
Our first product was the AIDs ribbons but soon we had learned other patterns from books in the library. Now we have many different products in many patterns.
The ideas we have for new products are God given and we get them in visions in our sleep. Reverend Marsh, our priest, has been our inspiration. It was he who first encouraged us to produce our craftwork and sell it at the church.
We are also training women in the townships in various skills such as leather work, making recycled paper maché products, and painting. The art in our work originates from old artefacts that our grandmother used to make, and she has passed these ideas to us.
