About Siyabonga

Siyabonga, founded in 2005 by Fred Koorn, imports items from South Africa. Anyone who has ever been to South Africa will enthusiastically tell about the beauty of the country, the kind people and the amazing nature. Finding souvenirs or presents is a party because such beautiful things are made and for sale. The positive responses to these gifts and the repeated requests to bring back items in a subsequent visit to South Africa led the company to start. Siyabonga is always looking for new items that suit every household. Everyone, from old to young, must enjoy it. The range varies from exclusive interior accessories, such as handmade wooden bowls, beautiful scarves and decorative pillows, to small items such as keychains made from threading beads onto wire and fashioned into the shape of animals. Jewellery, cute picture frames and children's cutlery are other products. Almost all products come from rural employment projects. By purchasing the products, you will contribute to a better life for the creators. All projects are visited by Siyabonga and the working conditions are good. The employees earn a good salary, are not underpaid and of course no child labour takes place. In August 2008, Fred Koorn became an Individual Associate of the WFTO (formerly IFAT), the International Fair Trade Organization. In January 2017 Fred Koorn became a recognized member of the same organization. P (eople), P (lanet) and P (rofit) must be the most important starting points when doing business. About the name, Siyabonga literally means "We thank you" in the Zulu language. Siyabonga thanks you for the interest you show in our products and we hope to welcome you as a customer soon.
