Twananani Textiles

Twananani Textiles is a group of 12 women, all inspired by traditional Tsonga patterns and symbols. They are based in Mbokota village near Elim, Northern Limpopo. They create a wide range of home decoration and fashion products, using techniques such as hand painting, block printing, dying, bead work and embroidery. They also decorate garments for well-known fashion designers in Johannesburg and make beautiful beaded and embroidered textile art work. In Mbokota, they run a workshop combined with a creche, which can both be visited.
