The Arts & Crafts shop at !Khwa ttu proudly display only genuine arts and crafts produced by the San people. The shop is supplied with work created by the San people some of whom are living in villages based in the remotest parts of South Africa.
!Khwa ttu offers the San craftsmen of Southern Africa an attractive outlet for their products. Some of the most beautiful pieces which you can find at the crafts shop are made from ostrich eggshells. For hundred of years the San have produced ostrich eggshell jewellery using only simple hand tools.
This is an extremely slow and laborious process which requires a great deal of skill. In the shop you can purchase the most up-to-date designs as well as traditional pieces; such as stunning necklaces, bracelets, wraps and bags. We also offer San paintings, bow and arrows, wooden carvings and many more items.
