Hakuna Matata has been trading for the past 15 years. Idea's for the business came from much early visits to Africa and making friends with crafts people mostly in Kenya, We started to import handmade Soapstone and Wood sculptures along with Artwork, Jewellery, and Traditional Clothing. The business has grown to be one of the few places in the South West where original African Arts and Crafts can be brought.
We also pride ourselves on the fact that we try to work with the Crafts People paying them the asking prices for their products and also returning some of our profits back to enable community projects. Presently we are involved in the fund raising for a school for economically challenged children, who are so poor they cannot even afford to attend the free state schools. We also have a large selection of urban clothing, mostly Bandana's, Jackets, Shorts, Jeans, Hats, and Rasta garments.
