Baroka Basadi means ‘Women Sewing” in Se Sotho and thats exactly what we do! The women we work with run their own micro businesses in a shared working space.
Our focus is using waste plastic to create new products and work for these ladies in the process. We also assist them with mentorship, small business enabling tools and the support required for the success of their own businesses.
The ladies manufacture items of all descriptions but we tend to focus on bags for conferencing and corporate gifting. They also make bespoke items like back packs and sports bags for their private clients.
We use recovered waste plastic in the lining of all of our products and we predominantly use SA made fabrics like Shwe Shwe for the exterior. We can also use SA sourced fabrics like denim, cotton twill, jute, wax print or any other fabric you would like us to recycle!
