Madi a Thavha design is a project to create employment for women living in the rural areas around Madi a Thavha mountain farm. We have developed a wide range of home decoration and fashion products which are produced from traditional and modern fabrics. Our main collection, the Venda and Shangaan Collection (see details below), is a home decoration collection inspired by traditional Venda and Shangaan materials and techniques. You can buy Madi a Thavha Design as well as other art and crafts in our shop on the farm.

Venda and Shangaan collection:
For these products we use the Venda stripe fabrics that the Venda women use to make their traditional dress. From the traditional way of decorating the attire, we have developed a very special decoration style making use of biases, black or shells buttons, and small beads. By using Venda stripe fabrics combined with bright colours plain material and textile decoration techniques the traditional Venda culture and crafts will revive.

The Venda stripes are locally designed and printed from high quality cotton by ‘DaGama’ Textiles in Durban, South Africa. Items in this collection are for example placemats, table clothes, table runners, serviettes, cushions, aprons, tea pot covers, potholders, and oven gloves. We also make cards from the venda material and locally produced recycled paper.
