Quazi Design

Transforming waste magazines into original accessories, Quazi Designs believe that craftsmanship and innovation used in combination can be powerful tools towards empowerment and economic independence. Design driven, they are innovators when it comes to developing new and interesting techniques of working with waste magazine paper. With a focus on the triple bottom line of people, planet and profit, the business is built on the principle of social, economic and ecological sustainability. All Quazi Design products are hand made in their workshop in Swaziland, where the artisans are encouraged to be part of the development process. They also offer product development internships, share skills, and encourage collaboration.

With their roots in 2009, Quazi Design started with the simple technique of rolling paper, to produce bead earrings. Co-founded by Doron, a UK designer, along with Flotsam, a local magazine distributor. Each collection is based on a different paper recycling technique. They also produce a jewelry collection from recycled copper in combination with paper and an interior line, also made from recycled paper.

Offering Fair Labour working conditions, that include fair wages, safe working conditions, as well as job training, Quazi are a Fellowship 500 member of the Ethical Fashion Forum.
