Chunky bangle made from layered waste paper.
Quazi Design aims to design for sustainable change and social impact, creating responsible and thoughtful products by transforming discarded waste magazines into original accessories and interiors.
Based in Swaziland, Quazi Design’s products are hand made by local women, empowering them through skill sharing and a living wage. It is believed that craftsmanship and ethical production could prove to be a vital economic sector for Africa. Quazi Design want to change the perception of recycled materials by developing innovative techniques combined with locally sourced environmentally friendly or recycled materials.
Quazi Design was started in 2009 in order to create much needed employment in Swaziland, Southern Africa. They started with the concept of a simple rolled paper bead earring displayed on a card, employing one artisan, believing in the potential to have a positive impact. It is a partnership between Doron, who is the creative and managing director, the force behind the business, and the local magazine distributors.
The workshop is situated in Sidwashini, in the industrial area of Mbabane, the capital city of Swaziland. The woman artisans are employed full time with permanent contracts, giving them job security and a living wage. Most of the artisans were previously unemployed, and on average each has 7 dependents.
