Spaza

Designer Julia Schaffer creates functional gifts, décor and fashion accessories using textile craft techniques like stamp printing, hand painting and crochet.

Spaza creates functional gifts and homeware inspired by craft techniques and local, sustainable raw materials, while helping to develop micro-businesses in disadvantaged communities around Cape Town. Guided by the principles of functionality, sustainability and appeal, Spaza products are designed for longevity, and easily biodegrade.

Spaza products include handknit cotton kitchen cloths, siscal scrubs, merino wool insoles, and Spaza dish covers - printed using handcarved stamps.
