Thousands of textile workers in Cape Town have been retrenched during the past decade due to tough international competition from Asia. Despite their skills and years of experience, many former factory workers battle to make a living. Nonophela Craft has decided to tap into this potential to make high quality products that appeal to ethically aware consumers.
