Sol was a manufacturing jeweller at the time. Sol started working with the metal and soon was making models and moulds and the demand for the products increased allowing them to give up their day jobs and focus just on SOL ART PEWTER. In 1998 they setup a shop in the Red Shed and traded from there which allowed the business to grow and supplied famous people like Nelson Mandela, Bill Clinton and a few Hollywood celebrities. Their customers returned regularly to purchase another one of the beautifully handcrafted lead free pewter items. Since 2008 I run SOL ART PEWTER and we now employ three full time workers in the work shop permanently and two retail staff. Our staff come from previously disadvantaged backgrounds and I am glad to be providing employment and improving their lives. We have an agent in JHB selling our products to curio shops and corporates. We also receive corporate orders and supply them with gifts or make new designs depending on what they require. We also export our products to clients overseas when there is a demand. All our items are manufactured locally at our workshop we make the moulds then cast and highly polish each item by hand. We use the finest lead free pewter and ensure each item is beautifully finished using traditional techniques and only 100 percent lead free food safe SABS pewter is used. We have over three hundred designs and come up with new designs regularly. We have an African range and contemporary designs to cater for the both the local and overseas market. Our range consists of Salad Servers, Butter knives, Sugar spoons, Cheese knives, bottle openers, ornaments, necklaces, business card holders, bottle stoppers and many more. Our vision is to create wonderful unique pewter items and to sell to local clients and clients from all over the world and for them to come back regularly to purchase more. We also believe in selling our items at the right price and ensure our quality is up to standard. Our product is uniquely South African and we want to increase turnover and provide more employment to our locals and satisfy our customers with a wonderful product. info@thepewterfactory.co.za+27 21 552 1473Our pewter collectibles are especially designed and are handmade, not mass-produced.They are therefore exclusive and unique.

A lot of detail and attention is put into manufacturing these items.  Each item is cast then cleaned up and finally polished to perfection.  All the designs and inspiration come from Africa we have a number of African animals in our designs and African shapes.  We have been inspired by Africa and the people to come up with new designs.</div>1
