Okapi strives to promote and elevate heritage craftsmanship. We endeavour to collaborate with and support the grassroots craft groups in and around South Africa in an effort to create sustainable jobs on the continent. We work closely with communities practicing extremely intricate weaving and beadwork to develop our accessories. ZenZulu wire horns were born from a collaboration between Okapi and ZenZulu - a fairly traded, eco community project based in KwazuluNatal which focuses on sophisticated Zulu weaving methods with a contemporary twist. Our beaded tassels are part of a collaboration with Monkey Biz, which revives traditional beadwork and creates stable jobs for their creatives in Cape Town.
