The Luminance Signature Collection aims to source or commission arts and craftwork that represent distinctive African craftsmanship.

Our focus is on high-quality, hand-made objects with a global appeal. This is why we’ve partnered with Eugenie Drakes and Josef Greeff, both product developers with a wealth of experience. Together with them and the National Empowerment Fund (NEF), we’ve identified talented communities in KwaZulu-Natal, Gauteng, the Western Cape, Swaziland and other neighbouring countries that’ve created a range of beautiful and unique items now available at Luminance. These communities include Ababumbi in Pietermaritzburg, Simunye in Kwanyuswa and Imiso in Cape Town.

Our plan is to support craft enterprises in rural and urban areas nationwide to ensure sustainable income-generation opportunities for them. This will be achieved through product development assistance, business skills training and mentorship programmes.
