ABOUT THE ARTISAN
Barbara Scrunchies was born when Barbara, a single mum living in an informal settlement, Dunoon in South Africa, lost her job during the COVID-19 Pandemic and had to make a plan to provide for her two kids, Marvellous and Bophelo.
Her dream is to make clothes one day, so as a start they came up with the idea of making and selling scrunchies to meet their needs. Within one month, she has been able to empower another 4 women to work and provide them with an income to change the future of their kids. Her vision is to help women and empower them to break the cycle of poverty.
