Cape Town’s always got something new and exciting to offer for both locals and visitors to the city.

What’s more, when you head out in search of something exciting to do, see or buy, it‘s good to know you’re helping our city grow and thrive.

Here’s how you can encourage our local female entrepreneurs when you support local.

Handmade goods always offer a personal touch that off-the-rack creations lack. So, if you’re looking for something special and unique to wear, try out this local community project.

Zenzeleni Zenzeleni specializes in vibrant shirts, pants and backpacks made by local ladies. Spearheaded by Jeanette Isimbi, this project started out by selling handmade pencil cases and has expanded to include weekly sewing classes as well as a range of awesome fashions.
