Quazi design is a cutting edge craft company that transforms waste magazines into original accessories and interiors. We believe in pushing the boundaries of craft, responsibility, and design.
Our vision is to be a leader in sustainable and fair trade design; where ethical and social standards balance with cutting edge handmade design.
Based in Swaziland, all our products are hand made by local women, empowering them through skill sharing and earning a sustainable permanent income. Most of our artisans were previously unemployed, and on average each has 5 dependents to take care of and to pay school fees for.
The business was co-founded by Doron a designer from the UK and Flotsam the local magazine distributors. Doron became the driving force behind the enterprise and since 2009 has worked in Swaziland creating a sustainable business model that wholesales worldwide.
All our products utilise 100% waste magazines, applying innovative techniques and we are continuously striving to create original designs and develop our product range.
Promoting social responsibility and environmental awareness in design and everything we do, we create a new perspective on fair trade. We are a founding member of SWIFT Swaziland Fair Trade Network.
We have a local retail shop near the Oshoek border to South Africa and welcome anyone coming to Swaziland to visit our workshop in Sidwashini, near the capital Mbabane.
