Selling through Discovered creates more income for artisans. They can set the price they want to receive for the products themselves. By cutting out all middlemen, artisans receive at least 20% more for their products. This is what we call fairer trade.
Discovered is dedicated to creating positive impact. Not all artisans work alone. Sometimes they work in groups or collectives, are helped by not for profit organizations or work for social businesses. We select our partners to ensure more artisans have work make at least 10% above average wage.
We are committed to crafts. We encourage artisans to make products using traditional crafts and techniques. Making products mainly by hand or with easy accessible tools or common available machines. We believe this is important to keep alive.
We love handmade. We also feel strongly about preserving the world we live in. That’s why we work with our partners & artisans to stimulate using local materials and natural resources, and paying special attention to packaging & shipping.
Product story
Shipping & returns
I live in the Western Cape, indigenous home to a huge range of proteas, including the pin cushion protea. Here is my take on this strange and beautiful flower with a little touch of Marimekko (at least I like to think so). The fabric for these totes has been meticulously screen printed by hand on 100% cotton. The inside is lined with cotton fabric and the handles are made from hardwearing cotton webbing. It's very important to me that my products are always 100% South African. Once I have completed a design, I source fabric locally and then hand over printing and sewing to wonderfully talented people who live and work in my home town, Knysna. Size: approximately 47 x 50cm (excluding straps)
