Kaross Studio & Café 

Kaross is an embroidery initiative, founded 1988 on a Citrus Farm in the Letsitele Area. While visiting the Embroidery studio, we welcome you to enjoy a light lunch, wonderful coffee, cake or home made lemonade at our Kaross Café. We are a gathering place like no other in our area. Situated under two magnificent trees, come and experience the African Farm Air and an unique ambiance that is truly part of Kaross. In Tintswalo Phakula’s words; “Don’t only feel at home, be at home”

We believe in bringing people together in a way that makes the world a better place. It is not simply about the beauty and passion that goes into creating incredible hand-embroidered works of functional art. It’s about the long-lasting benefits of job-creation within a community.

What’s more is how the jobs are created FOR the women in rural areas, developed AROUND who they are and their potential.

It’s not a job telling them WHAT to do and HOW to do it, but rather a special way of extracting value from something the Vatsonga people have handed down over many generations.

It is for this reason that Kaross’ mission is to provide opportunities based on these pre-existing skills and wealth of experience.
