Hand painted Candles and Ceramics

NOBUNTO is a South African Fair Trade manufacturer and creates high quality hand-painted candles and ceramics with the utmost attention to detail using mainly African inspired designs.

We are based in the Overberg region, a rural area of the Western Cape Province, about 190 km east of Cape Town, where the unemployment rate is as high as 42 - 50%. Here has NOBUNTO provided employment to mostly women of this disadvantaged community.

NOBUNTO products are responsibly handmade with love and care for our customers, artisans and the environment, from a team with more than 20 years’ experience.

The word NOBUNTO comes from the Sotho language, meaning For The People, in respect of the beneficiaries of this small entity – the artisans!

Our company name, as well as our logo with four intertwined hands, reflects our motivation and spirit of:





Global Harmony,

Helping Hands,



Teamwork and Fair Trade.
