About Ithemba

At Ithemba Creations we import and retail handcrafted, ethically sourced and traded, products from Southern African artisans. Ithemba is the Zulu word for hope. Our vision is to provide hope for our partners in Africa by facilitating the sale of their goods in the USA and Canada. We are mission driven and are committed to giving a portion of our proceeds each month to one of our partners and their causes.

Each piece tells a story.  South Africa is known as the rainbow nation of the world.  We wish to embrace and celebrate Southern Africa’s diversity and creativity, empowering lives and communities.  Our hope is that each item brings our consumers joy and they embrace our initiative of hope.
