We met Martin and Blessing who run a charming shop in Simon's Town, Cape Town that doubles as their workshop. Martin makes exquisite leather goods and Blessing sews various items out of shweshwe. Originally from Zimbabwe, Martin first worked as a gardener in South Africa, saving money to buy tools for his craft.I highly recommend a visit to their shop. (These magnets are by a third company that showcases their upcycled items there.) #unscramblingafrica
