Quazi Design

Their journey began in 2009 when Quazi Design became a formal business in order to create much needed employment in Swaziland. Beginning with the concept of a simple rolled paper bead earring displayed on a card and employing one artisan, Sibongile, who later became our production manager. The business was co-founded by Doron, a designer from the UK and Flotsam, the local magazine distributors. Doron became the driving force behind the enterprise and since 2009 has lived and worked in Swaziland building a sustainable business model with a dynamic balance between economic and social goals, believing that design driven handcraft can be a powerful tool for empowerment and economic independence. The core of our business is pushing the boundaries of craft and sustainable design through innovative techniques and continuous product development. All products are handmade and utilize 100% waste magazines.
