A quest to find promotional bags and gifts led us to discover Township, a social enterprise that celebrates local creativity and provides opportunities for township women to earn an income.
The organisation trains township women in sewing skills and helps them set up co-operatives to produce clothing and a range of promotional bags made from natural fabrics.
Township® exists to show women all over the world that with a little courage, it is possible to stand up and succeed.
Township products are now available at their first flagship store, which opened in the Cape Quarter in De Waterkant in 2010.
Why we like it
We like Township because it creates opportunities in disadvantaged areas and fosters local creativity. Its range of eco-friendly promotional bags also gives South African businesses the opportunity to do good while achieving their brand-awareness goals. Anyone who does something to create employment in a sustainable way gets a big thumbs-up from MotherCityLiving!
