African Beadwork is the largest and most important craft industry in South Africa, with beautiful beading techniques and skills being passed down through the generations from mothers to daughters. These rural African Beadwork ladies are some of the most impoverished people in Africa and the proceeds from their hand made African Beaded Necklaces, Beaded Tin Mugs, Beaded Key Rings, Beaded Lanyards, Beaded Tableware and many other African Beadwork crafts supports themselves and their families.

Zulu Wire Baskets are called 'Mbenge' in Zulu and are hand made using age old grass weaving techniques. Security guards working night shift started this wire work by weaving recycled telephone wire onto their security sticks. Huge array of colorful patterns and designs available.
Zulu Hats are traditionally only worn by the married Zulu woman. These brightly colored 'Isicholos' are made from a framework of grass and palm leaves covered in fabric with intricate bead and stitch work trim. Zulu hats have moved beyond clothing and are now used as African decor.
African Shirts are brightly colored shirts with intricate neck detail. Most African Shirts are pullover shirts with two front pockets and are available in a wide selection of colors and styles.
Brightly colored African bracelets, African necklaces and African earrings are worn by the local Zulu Maidens. Traditional African designs have fused with contemporary styles creating unique South African Beadwork Jewelry. The beaded Zulu Love Letter is an example of this creativity.
African Masks hand made from wood and fiber with metal inlays and African patterns, representing the different African cultures and tribes of indigenous Africans, from the East to the West Coast of Africa in their traditional ceremonies for both the living and the dead, most of these African Masks are highly decorated.
