Empowering women through Enterprise development and Education


Iziko Lo Lwazi is a non profit organisation based in Hout Bay, Cape Town. We make fine stationery products from recycled paper and apply unique beaded design elements hand-crafted by local women. We have the added value of being able to apply your company logo with our skilful beading to match your branding requirements and produce unique promotional items and stationery.

By purchasing our products, the well-being of women is nurtured. We offer an enterprise development programme, English literacy, skills training, life skills and opportunities for entrepreneurship. Loans and business mentoring are also made available to these women from the informal settlement of Imizamo Yethu.

Our paper product and beading range is what sustains our NPO. The product range includes conference files, note-books of various sizes, beautiful bound book journals, albums, guest signature books, telephone cubes and cards that are all manufactured from re-cycled paper. We also offer unique corporate gifts which include beaded USB covers and computer dusters, as well as bookmarks, key rings, lanyards and much more.
