Our Sweet conversation

Handcrafted upcycled wrapper handbags and accessories that instantly brighten up your day. Whether it’s chocolate, delicious biscuits, cooldrink or fruit packets, we use them all to create masterpieces.

“Capturing sweet moments in unique pieces of art while doing our small bit for our planet and community.”

MyAfricanMum’s story began with my OCD towards waste alongside an idea for an initiative that would help empower women in the community to be independent and employed. The chance came to be part of the solution when I relocated with my family to Port Elizabeth and introduced my first collection of hand crafted Eye Candy bags, all made from the heart.
