STORY

Blankets and Knitwear Handmade with Love in the Heart of the Karoo

“The heart featured on every blanket from Africa piece is the embodiment of all that lies behind this community project. It’s a heartfelt narrative of perseverance, empowerment, and the artistry of generations.” ~ Roslyn Bechet, Founder and Pattern Designer

Blankets from Africa is a female-owned and operated community project, supporting women in rural areas by creating a safe working environment in their community. Their dream is to maintain sustainable employment in Karoo communities and to create a positive change for generations to come. 

Nestled in the enchanting embrace of the Karoo Desert in South Africa, the Blankets from Africa cooperative is more than just home and knitwear – it's a vast project that invites you to immerse yourself in a world where heritage, craftsmanship, and elegance intertwine seamlessly.

Their range of artisanal products, meticulously handcrafted by a network of dedicated women, empowers rural artisans, enabling them to find meaningful, well paid work in their own homes, uplifting the remote local economies while offering you items of exceptional quality.

All products are spun from the softest, purest Merino wool, and are bio-degradable, durable, and allergy-friendly. Each blanket, homeware item, or nursery piece you purchase is a testament to a deep commitment to sustainability and social responsibility.
