The Weaver's Hut shop is situated in Howick and supports and promotes crafters from local communities. The Weaver's Hut is a weaving project that was started in the 1980's with the aim to provide skills and job opportunities for the local women in the impoverished rural area of Donnybrook. The sixteen weavers currently employed work on frame looms and produce quality rugs of international standards using a tapestry weave. Each rug is unique and usually has a truly African feel. The rugs are 100% pure wool – a blend of New Zealand, English and South African quality wools are spun to ensure a durable product. The fabrics are colour fast and therefore fully washable. The rugs can be custom-made for both local and international markets.
