Tintsaba

Tintsaba was founded by the late Sheila Freemantle in 1985. Her focus was on how she could help the women of rural Swaziland take charge of their lives and become independent.
Starting with only 12 local women, Sheila’s guidance, dedication and innovativeness brought Tintsaba to what it is today. These qualities ushered Tintsaba in to become renowned for refined, high quality sisal basketry weaving and jewellery making, and has been recognised as an industry leader and awarded repeatedly over the years.

Since inception Tintsaba has endeavoured to create a workplace that helps their women grow and develop themselves, through various courses and workshops in a variety of subjects such as leadership, skill-set development, training, environmental awareness and women’s health. They actively encourage an holistic approach to not only work but also in daily lives.

Over the last 30 years Tintsaba has trained and worked with over 1000 women in rural Swaziland, employing 20 Master Weavers and working with 26 women’s groups across Swaziland. The future for Tintsaba and Swazi women is one of independence, strength of self and to lead by example within our communities.

​Together we can weave a better life.
