The Coricraft Sewing Leadership Programme started out in 2005 as a means to educate and train an impoverished local community, and has since grown into a successful and essential part of the company. Today a small group of women from the Western Cape are sewing these delightful cushions for the brand, under the Scatter Project. Currently four talented seamstresses make up this proudly South African project, with plans for the company to employ more ladies in the future. Demonstrating Coricraft’s love for handmade items, the seamstresses were trained and taught how to develop their embroidery skills. After graduating top of their class from the project, these four ladies became permanent employees of the company. Following on their success, several other unemployed members of the community are making use of this opportunity to gain valuable experience and graduate with a nationally-recognised qualification. Made using imported Spanish fabric and lots of local handmade love, these homegrown scatters come in a variety of beautiful colours and patterns. Prices range from R125 – R195 each. New collections from the Scatter Project are in store every month. For more information or to find your nearest store visit coricraft.co.za.
