MetalCraft

Metalcraft pieces are high-quality handcrafted brass and copper metal art. The pieces are inspired by the Ndebele culture and ancient beliefs which captures the very spirit of Africa.  Started in the late 1980’s, the company utilizes local crafts people, providing meaningful employment for approximately 100 members of the community.  Located in a small village south of Zimbabwe in South Africa, the factory is a member of the Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) organization. The BEE is a pragmatic growth strategy to bring Africa to its full economic potential.  In addition to fair wages, the BEE requires that employers provide an ongoing training and education program for their employees.
