Meaning - The Helping Wind - in the Zulu language.
The unique and beautiful products made by the group, Sizwe Umoya, are hand woven by Zulu women and men in the rural areas of Northern KwaZulu Natal, a province of South Africa.
The Zulu tribes are famous for their weaving skills, traditionally weaving reeds and grass into baskets and mats.
Theses skills have been applied to 100% pure copper wire, mined in the copper mines of South Africa. This metal was regarded as more precious than gold.
The resulting artworks- woven bangles, bowls, brooches and Christmas lights, are dazzling. Each piece is
carefully hand crafted.
