Peta Becker brings an offbeat sensibility and independent creative vision to the work produced by her handmade-goods label Projekt. Becker left South Africa as a fine art graduate in 1978 to live and work in London as a designer specialising in fashion packaging. In 2004 she returned home with the desire to start a design-based project that would provide skills and income for unemployed women in her area.
Ten years later, 25 women work under her design direction, producing quirky crocheted products such as scarves, toys and décor items with a distinct African sensibility that are exported across the globe.
