The team has grown from four ladies working out of a garden shed to a vibrant, diverse group of 21 artists with stores at the V & A Waterfront Watershed, the Bay Harbour Market and a Visitor Centre in the heart of Hout Bay. All of our unique products are either made from or decorated with recycled teabags – a bizarre idea, but it works! One of the highlights of visiting the Watershed shop is meeting our vibrant Store Manager Peggy Mongwe. She lives in the Imizamo Yethu township in Hout Bay and will entertain you with stories of township living, how Original T-Bag Designs is making a difference in a challenging environment and how she has been making her own dreams come true since starting at T-Bags in 2006.

After many unsuccessful attempts to produce a quality product, a chat over a cup of tea with a special friend visiting from the UK led to a creative idea that has given work and new hope to many. ‘Just like the humble, used teabag that has come to us from all over the world, many of the ladies who work in this business came here, a bit like the teabag, discarded. And now they have such hope for the future. As Eleanor Roosevelt once said: A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until you put her in hot water.’<br><br><br></p></div>1
