CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA
WE ARE IBU IN ACTION:
With the help of the Ibu Foundation in 2022, Chic Fusion was able to purchase JOJO water tanks (used to collect rainwater for their wool feltmaking process) and wet felting equipment to continue their craft.
A passion to work with natural fibers and fabrics led founder, Razaan Jakoet, to explore feltmaking techniques making home decor and accessories out of 100% wool and other natural fibers. Razaan designs all the products before handing over the felting to women that she trains at the studio in Woodstock, Cape Town.
This grant will allow them to purchase JOJO water tanks to store rainwater (as wet felting requires much water and rainwater tanks are more sustainable), as well as protective gloves and aprons to use during wet felting and wool dyeing, shelving and draining racks, scissors and tape measures.
