Daleen – Bergvliet, Cape Town
“I received the bowls, and they are exquisitely beautiful!! Thank you very much, will treasure them forever!!”
Nothemba – Bramley, Johannesburg
“Wearing these earrings made me feel brave, free and original. I love how diverse these earrings are – like I can wear them with African attire and still rock my style look. Women are beautiful, we creative. Ok I left out how these earrings made me embrace my long face. Thank u African Mamas.”
Khumo – Morningside, Johannesburg
“I appreciated that you came to my aid at the last minute. All the gifts were going to the USA. When you buy things like these some people may not know how to use them, so ideas or stories of how people have used them may be useful. A dish can also be used as a wall decoration, a necklace on a stand similarly. I think telephone wire items are unique to SA, if not the SA story is unique.“
Dana – Bedfordview, Johannesburg
“I love my African Mamas ring. It’s so distinctive and gets lots of compliments”
Kelly, Northriding, Johannesburg
“So glad I found this company. Such speedy and professional service. High quality and affordable products!.”
“This is my power accessory, my story-telling piece. The beauty and precision with which it is made is striking – people always ask, “is it really handmade?” It makes me stand out and people always appreciate me in it. I got it as a birthday present in 2017, so I’ve had it for over 3 years now. I find that it’s very versatile and easy to blend in with stuff. I can do many things with it; work, weddings, parties.”
“I was very impressed with the new packaging in which the Beaded Christmas Tree ornaments came. I think this was my third order. Thank you also for the prompt response to my order as well as the speedy delivery to my house. Not only are the ornaments well made, but it feels good to support a company that enables other women to earn a decent living for their families. Thanks again for giving efforts of these gifted women opportunity to grow beyond their rural villages.”
Marie, Hout Bay, Cape Town
“I absolutely LOVE the necklace – thank you so much!! Your service was amazing, and I liked how the courier let me know exactly when delivery would take place! I purchased several items from your company at the Cavendish Market in December last year and will definitely be adding more to my collection.”
“I am thrilled with my custom-made earrings and pendant necklace – the items all work beautifully with my existing beaded bracelet (which you made) and I will certainly be recommending your services. The design and detail of your products is exquisite.
Thank you for your great services, you were prompt and friendly and pleasure to deal with, I wish you and your company all the success”.
Kezy, Zuri Events – Nairobi, Kenya
Thank you @African_mamas for the beautiful unique handmade necklace. Wearing it reminds me that so much impact can be obtained when businesses make conscious decisions to partner with and empower local communities.
Gwenda – NationBuilder: Pretoria, South Africa
The wire baskets we ordered as gifts were absolutely beautiful and so well made! We filled them with goodies to eat and they made a great gift. It was a pleasure to deal with Nomaswazi from African Mammas Crafts, and we’ll definitely buy products from them again!
Isabel – Cape Town, South Africa
The picnic basket made a beautiful wedding gift! She absolutely loved it and took it along for her honeymoon road trip.
Victoria – Aleit Events, South Africa
African Mamas Crafts was approached to create 470 beaded keyrings and lanyards for a corporate event hosted in Cape Town, for delegates from all over the world, some of whom had never been to Africa before. Nomaswazi over-delivered with beautifully made, quality goods that delegates delighted in. It was such a nice touch to add to the delegate swag bags, and something our guests will look at for years to come and remember such an incredible time that was had in the tip of Africa. Thank you Nomaswazi for your professional, friendly and approachable manner in which you dealt with me! I cannot recommend you enough and hope to work with you again soon.
Nico, SA Tourism – South Africa
“The South Africa National Convention Bureau (SANCB) went to participate at IMEX Frankfurt 2018. As part of our corporate gifts we wanted to have a sustainability village where our clients will choose a gift from the sustainability village that will give them a true feeling about SA. One of those gifts was the Zulu beaded necklaces that we ordered from African Mamas Crafts. The order was put very late and yet we managed to receive the gifts on time for shipping and the design work was perfectly executed. The necklaces were well received by our clients, Thanks for the great work and keep up the good work.”
Caroline, Johannesburg – South Africa
I have been so pleased to purchase your products on several occasions. The most recent was an online order, which went surprisingly well. I was a bit intimidated at first and phoned Swazi after a few hours of ordering to confirm she received it. The order was delivered by Swazi on time before I needed it. The packaging was lovely and the order was complete. Another lovely touch was she rushed part of the order in less than a week, and blessed me with a little thank you surprise. I would highly recommend the African Mamas products and service.
Wade, Amanzimtoti – South Africa
Perfect gifts for friends and family – excellent service. Thank you and so well done. Keep doing this good work.
Candace May, Event Project Manager, ACCA – London
ACCA held its international conference in Johannesburg in February 2017 and I wanted to look for a small gift to give all of our speakers. I wanted a gift that spoke of the country but also a gift that uplifted the local community. The wire plates were perfect! and the selection of beautiful colours were very popular. Not only was the service impeccable but they are great value for money too. Thank you African Mamas Crafts for giving us that little bit of South Africa to take home with us!
David, Gaithersburg – USA
I received the basket on Monday in good condition. The packing was excellent and the basket is beautiful. I hope, in the future, you will gain access to additional large baskets that are of interest to me. Thanks again for all your assistance
