Experience Unparalleled Artistry with KZNSB’s Handcrafted Cane Furniture: A Triumph of Craftsmanship and Inclusive Empowerment
Immerse yourself in the world of KZNSB’s handcrafted cane furniture, where each piece tells a unique story of craftsmanship, resilience, and social inclusion. Founded in 1919, The Kwazulu-Natal Society for the Blind (KZNSB) has grown into a dynamic organization committed to offering a multidisciplinary approach to human rights-related services for the blind and partially sighted persons in KwaZulu-Natal.
Tradition Meets Innovation
Every piece of KZNSB cane furniture is a marriage of tradition and innovation. Hand-selected, heated, bent, assembled, wrapped, sanded, and sprayed, each item undergoes a meticulous process that ensures superior quality and unique charm. It is the fruition of skills nurtured over years, including computer training, Braille training, and, notably, cane weaving training.
Sustainably Sourced, Expertly Crafted
The choice of material is as crucial as the artistry involved. Our cane, a solid, fibrous vine from the world’s tropical forests, is sustainably sourced, ensuring an eco-friendly touch to your decor. Several types of first-class cane are used, imported from the Middle East and Asia, adding to the uniqueness and quality of each piece.
Crafted by the Visually Impaired, for a Better Future
Behind every furniture item lies the remarkable skills of our visually impaired artisans. Their mastery in manipulating cane to form various shapes adds a layer of exclusivity to your decor while contributing to the economic empowerment and business development of this talented community.
Quality Assurance and Aftersales Services
Our commitment extends beyond the sale. We provide repair and refurbishment services for most cane furniture, offering ongoing maintenance such as sanding and varnishing. KZNSB also handles specialized repair tasks such as replacement of slats, reweaving of seats, and tennis net repairs, ensuring your cherished pieces continue to enhance your living spaces for years to come.
