Located in Sidwashini, Swaziland, Quazi Design believes that craftsmanship combined with ethical production could be a vital economic sector for Africa. Their efforts to help provide much needed employment in South Africa began in 2009. Today, all their products are made by local women artisans who are employed full time and have permanent contracts, giving them job security and a living wage. Most of these artisans were previously unemployed and on average each of these women has 7 dependents.

In addition to supporting their artisans, Quazi Design aims to change the way people perceive recycled items. Their products are sourced from environmentally friendly or recycled materials and altered into one of a kind creations bring beauty to any room.
