WHO WE ARE
Iphupho ( you pronounced it as ipoepo) means in Xhosa dream or vision. Babes and Zita, founders and co-owners, ﬁnally make their dream come through and opened the beautiful and inspirational GIFT SHOP in the centre of Knysna.
The aim of the shop is to stimulate creativity in producing handmade products and designs and with this, create jobs to members of our community and surrounding.
But it’s not only a shop. At the 4 meter long table, you can meet the women and men who are creating our unique products . For example Mike “the leather man “creates the most beautiful LEATHER ITEMS from ostrich or cow leather. You can bring your own designs for bags, belt, wallets, or leather alterations to him.
At the back of the shop you ﬁnd our team of seamstress lady’s Patience, Liyema and Florrie with their professional sewing machines and knowledge. Bring all your sewing and alterations or ideas and patterns. READ MORE
