Artisan: B & B Wholesale Crafts
Ben Ncube started B & B Craft & Recycling in 2002 working in the new South African tradition of making crafts from recycled materials, such as tin cans and discarded wire and incorporating beads in his designs. As the demand for the products he made grew, Ben, started training apprentices in the art form, paying them a fair price for the products they produced. The training and production provides a sustainable income for a growing number of young people, women, and people affected by HIV in Cape Town.
His recycled tin can art includes a variety of tin can animal designs as well a tin can plans and people. Recycled tin can crafts in South Africa is often referred to as Township Art.
Due to the nature of handcrafted products by small business artisans, stock is limited and variations may occur.
Supporting fair trade provides dignity and changes lives.
