Swazi beauty!

Friday 9th September we celebrated our 25th anniversary. The theme for the day was Swazi Beauty.

When we started planning our party we knew we wanted to do something special, which would involve our entire team. We wanted to have a creative process, and for all the team members to learn new skills.

We decided on a fashion show, where we designed and produced all the items. Over the last few months the team has been busy collecting ideas, agreeing on the theme, drawing, experimenting and creating. It has been a fun process, where we all have been involved in the development of the items, and planning of our birthday party. It was an honour to invite our families and friends to join us, and be part of our celebration.

Our party and fashion show was a great success! A huge thank you to everyone involved!

Baobab Batik is 25 years old!

Els started Baobab Batik in 1991. Since then she has been working with the team to build the sustainable social enterprise we are today. We employ 35 women full time, each of them specializing in their field of the production or within our sales team.

We have many plans for this year, as we believe 25 years in business should be celebrated! And we will celebrate it baobab-style, by focusing on our core values of having fun, being thought leaders and innovators and by working together as a team.

Our celebration will be in September 2016. And leading up to the event we will show you more and more of what we have planned. Here comes the first sneak-peak of the preparations :)
