Our Story

 

Barok is an embroidery initiative that uses iconic African imagery to create luxurious household and fashion pieces.  

Barok's incentive is to create jobs for the local women and provide training in various decorative techniques. The embellishment techniques incorporate typical Shangaan embroidery, Zulu stud-work (using recycled beverage cans), Xhosa stitching, and the Venda use of borders.
