Wezandla Gallery & Craft Centre
Ours is the largest selection of curios, crafts and other hand-made products in Port Elizabeth, sourced from 100 suppliers from the informal sector and 60 suppliers who have formalized their businesses. These essentially African items are sourced firstly from local craft suppliers then further afield from other regions of South Africa and Africa.
Established in 1994, we consider ourselves an alternative trading organization as we attempt to include products made by previously disadvantaged groups. We work with the community in promoting their products on the internet as well as representing them at a Fair Trade International show and markets. We also have crafters with whom we work in producing custom-made products for specific requests.
We assist producer groups in product development, pricing and marketing and we advertise in hotels & guest houses, tourist & visitor magazines, web pages& local newspapers and are members of other galleries and art & craft groups in Port Elizabeth.
