Rosecraft:  A Family Legacy and a Love Story about Africa

What started as a small workshop in 1974 is nowadays a thriving business that sells products locally and internationally. We are constantly working on the design of our products and the skills of our Artisans to keep ahead of the world trends.

Through a combination of contemporary design and traditional methods, Rosecraft creates luxurious accessories that boast the vibrant colours of Africa. Our designs have an African soul but are inspired by international trends: the results are distinctive creations for individuals who appreciate the uniqueness of handmade pieces. All our pieces are handmade from pure natural fibres of mohair, organically grown cotton, bamboo, wool and silk. We are constantly searching for new organic materials to keep our range innovative and eco-friendly. What started as a small workshop is nowadays a thriving business that sells it’s products locally and internationally and employs over 40 rural women, empowering them through skills training and fair wage that allows them to provide for their families.
