We also offer a specialist gifting service; using our extensive range of products and supplier network, we are able to curate bespoke gifts for personal and corporate clients suitable for all occasions.

Our goal is to grow into an innovative, inclusive space for lovers of all things local and all things socially-conscious. So whether you’re looking for sustainably-sourced honey to sweeten your afternoon cup of rooibos, handmade rusks or a gift to show appreciation to the special people in your life, we’ve got you covered.
 
Our goal is to provide a digital platform that gives small, owner-run businesses that actively participate in the green economy through producing eco-friendly and socially-conscious products a hub-like space to showcase and sell their products.
