The skills for handmade products might be threatened by mass production, but in Limpopo we still have fine master crafters and wonderful raw talent and materials.

Products of Limpopo

Limpopo has extraordinary natural, geological, archaeological and cultural assets. Its raw beauty offers an abundance of inspiration for creativity to bubble up to the surface. From the colourful wall-art on the rural homesteads, the magnificent Baobabs  and botanics of the Bushveld, to the soft patterns on the dung floors, bold colours of traditional attires and intricate textures on baskets and clay pots – all embedded in the colourful heritage of the  Venda, Tsonga and Sotho people of Limpopo.

Although the skills and knowledge of handmade products are in decline and threatened by mass production, there are still master crafters making fine products with Limpopo’s raw materials. On the following pages we give you a glimpse of some of the best handmade craft of Limpopo. You may notice how we support skills transfer to younger generations and how we adapt to new markets without loosing our Limpopo cultural signature.
