About Moksi

Who are we?

Waiting for a gate to board at OR Tambo International Airport, the question came up that would change the direction of two South African professionals.

“What would you do if you could do anything?”

What followed was a creative collaboration of business and marketing experience, market research and lengthy discussions with South African creatives and artisans. The idea that formed was a perfect combination of passion, experience and skill that collided to become something unique to offer South African creators and those looking to buy uniquely crafted products.

Moksi was born in 2022. The name derives from Moxie and refers to the noun:

“Possessing character of cleverness, skill, creativity, and fortitude to get through any situation.”

Moksi is an innovative multi-vendor, web-based company that offers a digital marketplace that caters for artisans, designers, craftsmen/women, and creators who produce exquisite high-quality handmade items. Moksi is fervently inspired by the idea of liberating the passion of crafts supporting the “handmade movement”. The industrial age with mass production has unfortunately cut deeply into these ancient arts with many fading over time.

We believe that there is nothing better than owning something that has been handmade by a skilled artisan that you know has developed, and refined rare skills to make something beautiful, unique and of excellent quality. Many of the world’s most desirable brands still, today, stand by the allure of the word “handmade” being inextricably coupled with quality. Moksi wants to bring the soul back to the atelier.

We believe that crafting and artisanship are not necessarily about creating “perfect”, beauty often lies in imperfection. We believe artisans require the space and time to finish a product and explore their expression and talent of mastering their craft. We fervently stand for supporting local handmade artisans.

As you browse through our range of products, know that these products are handcrafted and unique. Appreciate the thought, design, hours, and creative process that led to the eventual completion of the craft. When you buy through Moksi, you are buying authenticity.

You deserve a limited edition.
