Why we love Beloved Beadwork
Beloved Beadwork was founded a decade ago by Laurence Tshimpaka and Anna Richerby with the goal of both producing original pieces and contributing to a transformed and ethical craft sector.
The Cape Town-based team is made up of 13 womxn. Staff aren’t required to have beading skills as they’re trained on the job. They’re offered full- or part-time contracts that include flexible working and fully paid maternity leave. “We try to operate the way we think all companies should – by focusing on our staff team feeling fulfilled and heard, we ensure that what we make is of excellent quality,” says Anna.
