Our Warmest Wishes for 2020

Our past does not equal our future. 2020 is an exciting year where the seeds we have planted and acted to care for, grow and become part of our creation going forward.

Now is the opportunity to learn from the negative experiences of the past, take control of the present so that the future can be lived in faith as we command it to be.

Khwela Factory wishes you a purposeful, happy and prosperous 2020. Each and every day is a present. Let’s make the most of it.

Don’t renovate your space until you read this

Spring cleaning your home or office hopefully involves recycling old material and decluttering your space. Let’s be mindful and responsible when it comes to climate change so please recycle what you can. It will take each and every one of us to save this earth. It’s fantastic to see how stylish recycled material can be when a talented designer works with the project manager and property owner to design a dream vision and manage it into reality.

Renovating your space can bring about positive energy into your life and your community. If you fail to start your renovations with a documented project plan, you may be planning to fail. Manufacturers are known to say they can do the job in 5 days that ends up taking a whole 2 months to complete due to delays, over expenditure, a sudden increase in the scope and quality issues.

If you are a marketing executive who needs a reliable project manager to handle your renovation or corporate gift project for the company without you having to micro-manage, Khwela Factory would design the project plan for your requirements, monitor, and evaluate the project throughout its life cycle to ensure professional management and delivery.

Starting a project without a professional project plan is like burning plastic and hoping that there is no such thing as climate change. If you would like to save money and get great value for your new breath-taking space, your corporate gift or renovation project, contact kgomotso@khwelafactory.co.za.

There goes another half year. Hopefully we all are happy with the way we have been managing our lives. Firstly, Khwela would like to thank all of you who drove out to Brits in order to celebrate African unity with us through food, music, fashion, honey and other craft goodies. This event was held at Memme Ramaila’s farm. Memme is a leader in the agriculture sector as a bee and maize farmer. She put her heart and soul into promoting farming for rural women and youth. Your support is much appreciated and we hope that this year will continue to be a year of growth, planning for next year and completely challenging ourselves to make full use of our potential.

Khwela Factory is currently working on it’s collection of Unoyiwawa merchandise and we hope to soon bring an African flavor to your souvenirs or torn upholstery. Watch this space for when we announce an opportunity to pre-order our goods at a massive 50% discount.
