Roots of Creation
Roots of Creation is a fair trade company based in Cape Town, South Africa. Specializing in brass products, they are recognized for their high quality and innovative designs. For 20 years, this co-conscious enterprise has provided employment in all stages of production: mould creation, creating molten metal, polishing products, electroplating, and shipping. Furthermore, every step of the process to make their adorned products happens under one roof.
Often called the “Rainbow Nation” because of its hybrid mixtures of different cultures, South Africa is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. This multiculturalism is reflected in its art, dance and music, which have been influenced by more than two hundred years of colonialism, but have also retained a strong local imprint and incorporate indigenous sounds. Arts and crafts, such as masks, textiles and traditional beaded jewelry are only some of the examples of richness of the South African cultural identity.
