Makhosazane Sekgwama is a fiber artist that specialises in crochet product design. Growing up in a family of artisans, her work is influenced by the natural landscapes of KZN, an area where she spent most of her formative years. Her company ROSA HANDMADE creates homeware products such as baskets, potplant covers, pouffes, throws and rugs. Her products are handmade using recycled cotton fabric materials from local clothing industries.
For Sekgwama what makes a great artist is someone who is able to create and design products, that solve current environmental problems in the most aesthetically pleasing way. These products should be multifunctional, highly durable and environmentally friendly.
