At Khokho we believe in creating a deeper impact within the local communities. We partner with women weavers from the Ntondozi region of eSwatini to provide sustainable opportunity and fair wages in areas of limited economic prospect. We aim to support the empowerment of each artisan and her family, as well as give women greater security, prosperity and self-purpose.
Together with the weaving cooperative Buhle baKhokho, we are able to transform traditional weaving techniques into specialized panels for Khokho handbags.
Buhle baKhokho – translated to Beauty of the Great Grandmothers – is a self-governed cooperative of 12 female weavers from the Ntondozi region of eSwatini. These highly skilled artisans began sharpening their traditional weaving techniques in 2014, transforming their craft to create specialized panels for Khokho handbags. Through extensive training and workshops facilitated by the Khokho design team and our partners, Buhle baKhokho was formalized in 2015.
