“Craft as one of the purest expressions of culture. Handcrafted items build bridges not only from human to human but also from culture to culture. In a country, and world, that is too often preoccupied by, and divided by our differences, the unifying power of handcraft must not be overlooked” – Jim Brett
Bili Beadwear’s diverse team of South African women explores the potential of beadwork through an expanding range of handcrafted, sustainably made, fashion accessories.
The women live + work in Wallacedene, a township located 35 minutes from Cape Town CBD. By taking industry to the township, we support this economy, reduce the cost of time + travel for the women who can then spend more time with their families and in their homes.

Bili Beadwear is committed to empowering previously disadvantaged South African mothers so as to enable financial inclusivity with skills enhancement, by responding to the growing international trend of artisanal handcraft.
The 5 crafters, hailing originally from the Eastern Cape, possess world-class beading skills + a natural intuition with the application of colour.
