AB Beadwork was founded in 1985 and is based in KwaZulu-Natal on the east coast of South Africa, a region plagued with unemployment and poverty.  Its workforce consists solely of rural women from the area, giving them a platform for their beadwork skills, as well as the means to support themselves and their families. The beaders take traditional Zulu beadwork to new levels by combining traditional skill with contemporary designs, to create jewellery and objects that delight the senses with their richness and colour. 

AB is not only an empowerment company, but also a company with a big heart. It not only provides its employees with a stable income, but also gives them real input in the development of their business products. It offers numerous skills development programmes, giving their employees the opportunity to grow beyond the business. Each and every employee has a bank account into which their wages are paid and they have learnt the skills of how to manage their money.

AB is also in the process of working towards certification with the international Fair Trade organisation.
