Thank you for your support during our first year of business! We've nearly sold out all our stock from 2020 and are currently working on restocking. Since we have such limited inventory right now, we're taking a short break from selling online. If there is a product you see on our website that you're interested in purchasing, please email handicraftsoul@gmail.com to inquire about availability.

Shwe Shwe Products


Shwe.co.za is a social enterprise group based in the greater area of Johannesburg, South Africa that makes high quality cooler bags and handbags from recycled materials. They work together with NGOs, community-based groups, and women-owned micro businesses to uplift through job creation and reduce landfill waste at the same time!

The outer part of the functional products the women create uses traditional South African shwe shwe fabric, while the foundation and lining of the products is made from recycled waste materials including billboards, tents, and even car seat covers. Reclaimed "pleather" from previously used bags is upcycled for the trim of the products, giving them a sophisticated look. The job opportunities provided through manufacturing these stunning goods results in meaningful change for the local communities!
