Founded by Julia Schaffer in 2013, our designs were inspired by Julia’s daily household tasks and a need for alternatives to disposable plastic items that the world has become accustomed to.

‘A Spaza shop’ is an informal shop selling everyday household items, run from home in South African townships. The production of Spaza’s functional hand-made products creates home-based employment for South African women.

The products are designed by Julia in her home studio and are produced by women in home industries in and around Cape Town, with careful consideration for the natural, sustainable, raw materials that are locally available.
