About Us

We are excited to share with you our lovingly handmade, upcycled wrapper handbags and accessories.  Our heart is that in 10 years-time MyAfricanMum will have created an abundance of new jobs by upcycling waste from delicious sweet wrappers. We have decided it is time to be part of the solution, creating something gorgeous and funky, while contributing to the growing economy of South Africa and providing employment for the previously disadvantaged. Here is to KEEPING South Africa GREEN!

Creating magic with heart and hard work

Meet the mums who make up our team. Through hard and heart work, we love creating Eye Candy masterpieces which will undoubtedly ignite sweet conversations wherever you go!  




The Workshop

Be it working from home or be it at our workshop, our time is wisely spent selecting the right combination of wrappers and pursuing quality in all we do to create unique Eye Candy handbags and accessories for you to enjoy.
