Quazi Design was started in 2009 in order to create much needed employment in Swaziland, Southern Africa. We started with the concept of a simple rolled paper bead earring displayed on a card, employing one artisan, believing in the potential to have a positive impact. It is a partnership between Doron, who is the creative and managing director, the force behind the business, and the local magazine distributors.
Our workshop is situated in Sidwashini, in the industrial area of Mbabane, the capital city of Swaziland. Our woman artisans are employed full time with permanent contracts, giving them job security and a living wage. Most of our artisans were previously unemployed, and on average each has 7 dependents.
Sustainable design for social impact.
Earrings are made from 100% waste paper in Eswatini.
