New online platform

The Cape Craft and Design Institute (CCDI) has developed a new online platform which showcases craft and design products made in South Africa. The platform has been made possible thanks to funding by the South African Department of Small Business Development. It is a non-transactional search and connect site that is free to use and will open up access to new markets for small craft and design businesses.Seen at the launch on Tuesday February 28 are Minister of Small Business Development Lindiwe Zulu; Edith Vries, Director General in the Department of Small Business Development; Shado Twala, chairwoman of the board of the CCDI; and CCDI executive director Erica Elk.
