Vine was established in 2014 in the Cape with a vision to create opportunities for disadvantaged women to earn their own income.
Vine teaches the ladies skills such as arm knitting and crocheting, and markets their products. Their designs are all individually handmade, mostly with reclaimed materials including cotton, leather and wool. The product range is broad and varied, and includes fabric snoods, necklaces and scarves.
Taking hand with Creative Dezigns has been of huge benefit to the upliftment of their ladies. They take immense pride in what they do, and seeing their products sell overseas, gives them a great sense of achievement. The tremendous support of the UK women to the range has kept many Vine ladies in employment and their families fed.
