African Creative have supplied original, wire beaded designs to art lovers locally and from around the globe for the past 15 years. As an established and professional arts business, our small team of artists create wire, bead and rope artwork in our workshop in Cape Town. We are a team of perfectionists, innovative and creative, because we realise the value of handmade art and decor. Our wire beaded sculptures are one-of-a-kind, detailed, spectacular collector’s pieces. None of our art pieces are mass manufactured and our role as liaison between collector and artist is our pleasure as we share the singularity of African art with new and seasoned buyers.

Our Conservation Efforts
Our social conscience extends beyond the sourcing of sustainable products, people are at the heart and foundation of our business but so is the Rhinoceros. Fewer than 26 000 rhino remain alive in the South African wild and poaching continues to increase at a frightening rate.
The Locked Horn Project
The Locked Horn Project, launched in 2013 in collaboration with StopRhinoPoaching.com, aims to raise awareness and very necessary funds for the fight against poaching. This conservation initiative is of great importance to us at African Creative and for every beaded Locked Horn Rhino purchased, we donate 15% to support rhino conservation projects. The spirit of Africa lies within the majesty of its wildlife, people and natural splendour. We can’t save our Rhinos without everyone’s help. We need you to be involved in this conservation effort, visit http://lockedhornproject.com for more information. We are excited to launch our new Endangered Species Collection during February 2019, this is a limited edition bead, wire and rope collection with a percentage of sales given to Stop Rhino Poaching.

African Creative proudly supports SANCCOB, a leading marine, non-profit organisation dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of endangered seabirds, specifically the African penguin, a threatened species. More than 97 000 seabirds have been admitted and treated by the organisation, with over 54 different seabird species treated annually.
We need to play our part, and this includes you. Please support SANCCOB and their incredible marine life rehabilitation projects by purchasing a SANCCOB Plush toy here or at SANCCOB online. For every purchase, a portion of the sale goes to SANCCOB to assist them with their vision, to diminish seabird extinction.
