EARTH AFRICA - RURAL CRAFTS WHOLESALE SUPPLIER.
Earth Africa is a South African WHOLESALE & RETAIL supplier of a vast range of authentic African products including Zulu beadwork, traditional African clothing, jewelry, telephone wire baskets, curios, artifacts and so much more - if it's made in Africa we either stock it or we can source it. Situated in Durban, South Africa, we supply the local market and export to most International destinations.
WHOLESALE PRICES - NO WHOLESALE LOGIN REQUIRED.
In the past our customers were required to log-in to access wholesale prices - we have done away with this and now show our prices to everyone - why do we do this?
Earth Africa is situated in South Africa, a Third World Country. We are South Africa's premier bulk wholesalers of handmade African products - while we export to most First World Countries we also supply 100's of local micro-businesses, hawkers, traders, vendors, etc, and this sector of the market (Third World Buyers) do not understand the concept of wholesale log-in. We do not have the luxury of hiding prices behind a WHOLESALE LOGIN anymore - our customers go onto our website and expect to see all our prices immediately and this is what we are now offering.
Please do not contact us and ask for our wholesale prices - the prices you see on our website are the wholesale prices.
RETAIL PRICES (MINIMUM SPEND R350.00).
EARTH AFRICA is predominantly a wholesale supplier however we do offer a retail service as well - when you view the prices on our website you will notice we show a price scale with numerous different prices for all our products - the price for 1 unit (RETAIL) is higher than for multiple units (WHOLESALE). The minimum spend for retail buying is R200.00.
Before you place a small retail order from an International destination please take note of minimum shipping costs here, it may not be commercially viable for you to place a small order as minimum shipping costs can be quite high.
GUARANTEED LOWEST PRICES?
EARTH AFRICA is confident of having the lowest prices in South Africa for similar products, this is not because we pay our suppliers less, on the contrary. The reason we offer such low prices is that we deal in bulk and work with incredibly low-profit margins, this is the only way we can benefit the large number of rural crafters who rely on us for their livelihoods.
In the event you do find lower prices from another supplier please let us know and we will not hesitate to review those prices.
