About us

LULA Handmade is a local business based in the Helderberg, Western Cape and derives its name from the IsiXhosa word meaning “to simplify” or “to make easy”.

Inspired by the surrounding breath-taking mountains, beaches and unique plant life, it is no wonder that Lula Handmade strives to make a sustainable difference in the local environment and community one product a time by:

  • using repurposed fabric wherever we can in the production and packaging of our products,
  • providing multifunctional fabric products,
  • assisting local small business owners by making it easy for their products to come to life by providing development and production service to their  businesses.
  • while providing an income to local women who produce these eco-friendly products.

Lula Handmade was re-launched during the 2020 Lock down and makes it our mission to offer easy-to-access, quality handmade fabric bags, baskets and packaging products for sale to those who seek to purchase versatile, low waste products for their homes or businesses.
