Thola Africa

We draw inspiration from Africa, this immense, beautiful continent with its diversity of people and places. We celebrate its creativity. That is why we created Thola Africa: to take South African artisans to the world and give the world access to a curated selection of unique, hand-made crafts.
We all want to support local and empower small businesses, but sometimes it can be difficult or inconvenient to do so. Thola Africa solves this problem by partnering exclusively with small local brands and entrepreneurs, making it easier than ever before to find and support Africa’s talent.
Our designers are small, community-based businesses. Our mission is to help them grow through our platform so that they can create jobs and help to develop South Africa. Thola Africa is a not-for-profit company; all profits go to build the skills of our artisans and their businesses.
