Meet The Makers
〰️ MEET THE MAKER: Busisiwe Nkabinde 〰️
Busi was born in Mooi ('Beautiful') River on 9th of July 1973.
She attended the local Zulu Speaking Primary School and then moved on to the Eninyezana High School in Mooi River Town.
Busi unfortunately never completed High School due to violence in the area. So her highest education level is Year 11.
She joined the team in July 2014. It was her very first job and she has been with us ever since.
Busi is a quiet & gentle soul who commands respect in her mature and dedicated attitude to her work and colleagues.
She has worked her way up and is now in charge of all the artisans in our Studio!
Busi lives at home with her partner of 21 years, her son, daughter & aged mother, who she also supports.
