Our KBA Africa entrepreneur of the Month is Crafted Inc, run by the dynamic Gladys Chibanda. Crafted Inc is an eco-friendly manufacturing company which specialises in handmade stationery like journals, diaries and notebooks by recycling old paper and fabric. The recycled paper is also used to manufacture gift bags and gift boxes.4

The stationery is proudly fashioned by the women of Zimbabwe! The women are inspired by the rich vibrant colours that represent Africa, and use pieces of colourful remnant fabric to cover the original handmade notebooks and diaries. The notebooks, journals and diaries are manufactured using recycled paper which results in original pieces of stationery.

Crafted Inc empowers women in the community by using them to manufacture this eco-friendly range of products. Their range includes diaries, journals, notepads, game pens, photo albums, gift bags, gift boxes, folders and files.

They make timeless keepsake handmade stationery for any occasion or special event. They design bespoke stationery created to reflect any personality, style or corporate image. Fabrics used include java print, batiks, animal and abstract prints. Crafted Inc can deliver anywhere in the world!
