AboutZulucow sells exquisite Nguni cowhide rugs; and cowhide bags, belts, purses, keyrings and cushions; and ottomans; all finely crafted by a team of talented Zulu ladies in rural S.Africa.
All Zulucow’s rugs and accessories are sustainably sourced, by-products of the food industry, creating desperately-needed jobs. Ma Philippine, Thandi, Lindiwe, Thani and the rest of the Zulu ladies, are single parents and sole breadwinners. They don’t want hand-outs; the skills they’ve learnt in finely-crafting all Zulucow’s pieces empower them, as well as enable them to support large extended families.
I have been working with these wonderful, talented ladies for the last 7 years. They’ve empowered me too!
