This beautiful pair of Oven Mitts feature intricately patterned Shweshwe design used in traditional South African textiles.   They are extra thick to handle the hottest jobs and the padded cotton interior is comfortable.  Can be used on either hand and feature a handy hook for storage. $40

These bowls are made using colourful wire stripped from discarded telephone cables.  Each bowl is a work of art, a talking piece and a practical gift.   As with most handmade items, each bowl is unique and the pattern may vary from the image.  $28
