Buhle BaKhokho Association
Buhle baKhokho– translated to Beauty of the Great Grandmothers- is a group of 10 female weavers from the Ntondozi region of Swaziland. These highly skilled artisans began sharpening their traditional weaving techniques in 2013, transforming their craft to create specialized panels for Khokho handbags. Over the course of 12 months, through extensive training and production workshops facilitated by the Khokho design team, Buhle baKhokho was formalized in 2015. Work done through the association contributes to the alleviation of poverty by supporting the development of local businesses within the Ntondozi community. Buhle baKhokho receives a percentage of every Khokho handbag sale.
Khokho is proud to partner with international nonprofit organization, Nest. Nest is committed to the social and economic advancement of global artisans through supply chain transparency, sustainable business development, and widespread industry advocacy. Their work continues to create economic opportunities that alleviate poverty, empower women, and preserve cultural traditions.
