South Africa’s African crafts market: A glimpse into the country’s diverse craft culture



The South African craft industry has been growing steadily for more than a century, and it continues to grow.

While the craft industry is not as important as its counterparts in the developed world, its growth is growing faster than the global craft market.

This year, craft aficionados from around the world will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the South African Craft Federation.

The Federation is an umbrella organisation for the many artisanal businesses that operate in the country.

In a time when global consumers are demanding more affordable products, the South Africa Craft Federation has developed its own way of producing affordable and high quality products.

This article will take a look at some of the countrys craft and specialty shops, and how the country has developed into a place where African craft is more widely accepted.

The story of the Craft Federation’s origin and development is one that will be explored in this article.

In 1858, the first workshop was opened in Cape Town, which was a joint venture between the King and Queen of South Africa.

In 1863, the Queen and her father, the King of South African Republic, agreed to open the first South African market for the sale of artisanal goods.

The first shops were set up at the time of the British occupation in South Africa, and they became the first commercial outlets for the trade in the province.

It was also during the early years of the Confederation that a number of African artists began to develop their own works of art.

The Craft Federation was founded in 1872, and in 1875, the Association of African Artists was established.

It took three years to form, and the first shops opened in 1877.

A number of talented artists, including William Nelms, John Brown, and David Nelmes, started working at the first craft shops, including the famous Foyers shop in the city of Johannesburg.

In the early 1900s, the number of craft shops in South African cities and towns increased dramatically.

In fact, more than 1,000 craft shops were established in South Africans city of Durban alone, and many of them were owned by artists from all over the country, including South African born artists like Sisulu Mabela.

This was not a new development.

In 1790, the British Government of South Wales had a plan to build a new market for selling all kinds of goods.

It did this by creating a new district for artisanal shops.

This district was known as the Foyters district, and within the district, the Foys were famous for selling their goods to the city, including their own workshops.

As a result, the city was flooded with many craft goods.

In 1899, the Federation, led by the late Sir George Foyes, formed the Federation of South Africans Craftsmen (FOSM), and it quickly became one of the largest craft societies in the world.

By the end of the 19th century, the craft shops had become known as an integral part of the citys life, and this was an important factor in attracting the best artists and artists from around Africa.

This is why the FOSM had such an important role in shaping the cultural and artistic development of the African continent.

As time went on, the size of the Foos increased and they were able to provide a larger and better service.

In 1901, the Confederation of African Arts, a separate organisation for African artists, was established to ensure the continued success of the art and craft industry.

Today, the largest of the federations craftsmen trade, the Craft Foos, are the largest in South America.

In addition, the European Union (EU) has also provided a large number of opportunities for African craft.

The Confederation of Arts is one of those organisations that aims to make a contribution to the African economy.

It is the only trade association in the EU that provides technical assistance to the sector and also provides support to small and medium-sized businesses.

The European Union also provided the Confederation with funding to set up its first workshop, which is still open to all the craftisans of the Federation.

In recent years, the trade and commercial activity between the European Community and the South Africans has greatly improved.

This has helped to attract the talents of African artisans to the European continent.

The number of European Union craftsmen working in South Afrika grew by almost a hundred percent in 2015, to more than 200,000.

This means that European craft has gained a great deal of international recognition and has helped make the South of the continent a world-class destination for artisans.

However, while the number and growth of European craftsmen have contributed to the rise of the craft market in South, the African craft market is growing at a much slower pace.

This can be attributed to the fact that many African craftsmen choose to pursue their careers outside of the industry in South.

In 2016, the country ranked second in the worlds craft market for art and design, behind only China.
