Artisans in South Africa

SERRV partner since 2018
South Africa

Your purchase promotes sustainable development in Africa by providing consistent work and fair wages to marginalized rural artisans, enabling them to shape their own lives and advance hope for future generations.

Since 2018, SERRV International has partnered with artisans in South Africa, providing a long-term trading partnership and interest-free advance payment for our orders. Through sales of their products, artisans receive fair wages, equal opportunities, safe working conditions, and long-term relationships built on mutual respect. Today the organization's mission is two-fold: to market fine contemporary crafts to create a better life for artisans and their communities and to educate consumers about fair trade's ability to fight poverty in the developing world.

Artisans in South Africa specialize in basketry to produce their beautiful handcrafts. Read more about these handcrafting techniques.
