About Us

  Imvelo Eswatini is a socially conscious organisation committed to providing individuals with fashionable jewellery whilst simultaneously aiding the alleviation of poverty and empowerment of women through flexible work opportunities and sustainable business in Swaziland, Africa.

Imvelo Eswatini was established in 2007 by Manzini Youth Care, a Salesian, Catholic NGO working with marginalized youth and their families in Swaziland. Today, Imvelo Eswatini is a thriving small enterprise working with over 25 women from informal urban settlements who carefully and lovingly craft each accessory by hand. Our women are constantly striving to combine their traditional skills with new techniques, fostering creativity and promoting skill sharing. Each piece is handcrafted from beginning to end by one individual: through her hands she allows her creations to tell her story, making each accessory uniquely soulful. Imvelo Eswatini believes in fair trade and the empowerment of their employees and has recently become a member of SWIFT (Swaziland International Fair Trade Association) to show their commitment to the fair trade practices whilst also hoping to raise awareness amongst their customers.
