#jobcreation

African Ostrix has helped to set up a few small factories in previously disadvantaged areas where people work from their home or hired premises. The owners and workers in these factories are mostly women and are some of the few remaining leather artisans in South Africa. African Ostrix keeps these factories in business and thus ensures job opportunities for local entrepreneurs.

A Team with a dream

For African Ostrix team members Chris Joubert and Noleen Franken, it all started with wine – for many years producing, marketing and selling some of South Africa’s BEST red, white and sparkling wines at Spier Wine Estate! Back in the 1990s Chris ventured into ostrich farming and had a new dream to create locally manufactured high-end quality ostrich leather products.

Being #agripreneurs at heart, Chris and Noleen’s new business idea boomed! Today, more than 20 years later, African Ostrix’s luxury niche range of leather handbags and accessories speaks for itself – with a double-decade record of successfully supplying the local wholesale and retail tourist market as well as export markets in the rest of Africa, the European Union and United States.
