It sounds too good to be true, but a store that sells beautiful, hand-crafted, local products with a mission to give back, does in fact exist. It’s called KIN Culture, and if you haven’t logged in yet, this is your chance – it’s where overindulgence is heavily rewarded.

Every time you make a purchase through KIN Culture you make a guaranteed investment towards vulnerable children and orphans. But this is no willy-nilly attempt at a charity shop. Each item is carefully designed by a well known creative collaboration, manufactured locally by the community and quality crafted by the team.

KIN Culture products are best defined as designing with humanity. Each product has a story. A story of collaboration, inspiration and hope.

Here are our favourites, available to you now on the KIN Culture Online Shop

You may recognise some of the designers that have committed to the same KIN culture values, the likes of She is Visual, CK_Ramics and NON_EUROPEAN. With the skill set and quality that comes with designers of this calibre, the prospect of what’s coming next is quite rousing.

A great South African once noted that a nation should be measured by the way that it looks after it’s children.
