Meet the Ladies

Take a look at the faces of the women on this page. What do you see? Strength, determination and pride — pride in the work they do and its impact on their families and community. In regions that once offered little economic opportunity, these South African women (mostly of the Xhosa tribe) have made an investment in the future by learning new skills and producing high-quality goods that connect their lives to yours. The beauty and uniqueness of the work they do tells a tale of the beauty and individuality of each of these women. Be Sweet invites you to become a part of this ongoing story. Roll over each image to learn a little bit about who is uniquely hand crafting and bringing a whole lot of love and life to our knits and accessories.
