All HummingRaven products are hand made in South Africa with Love.
Each product can be traced back to the people involved in making your product.
At HummingRaven we love this quote, “when you support handmade, you are not just supporting a person, small business, family, our economy, you are purchasing a small part of an artist’s heart.”
Started by three passionate South Africans…
As a wife and corporate working mom of two kids, sometimes I wonder how I manage to find time to do everything else including co-owning HummingRaven and also making some of the products. But it is true, that when you find your passion it really isn’t work at all! I apply all my corporate know-how to this business and I love it! I also thoroughly enjoy making all the macrame products! Once you place an order I just love making the macrame yoga straps knowing that each one is unique and special and specifically made with you in mind!
As the co-owner of HummingRaven I feel so incredibly blessed to be part of a brand that values hand made products produced by local talents who are so enthusiastic and passionate about what they create. Every time we come together as a team to brainstorm about new designs, we make such beautiful memories through our sharing and collaboration. As a Holistic Healer and Yoga instructor I feel so privileged to be aligned with a product brand that truly embraces the yoga philosophy of unity and equality. I believe that the intention of our brand is to honour the Divine in all and we thank you for your love and support.
I stopped working 12 years ago to raise my boys. I have been fortunate enough to be in a position to be there all the time for them. This has been an absolute blessing. As much as it has been fulfilling for me, I am so excited to have the opportunity to be a part of HummingRaven with such amazing women. My sister, Lisa and my friend Stacey approached me and asked if I would be interested in creating a yoga line of accessories with them. I am involved in the production of the products as well as admin and these are definitely my strengths. The exciting thing for me is that we all have strengths in different areas and we come together and make a great team.
…joined by an awesome team

Kelly is one of those women who really juggles a lot, as working full time in one of the large Banks and also a mom of three daughters – two of which are preschool age twins, she obviously doesn’t have a lot of free time! But when she does have a moment you might find her behind a camera lens. She enjoys taking photos as she finds it relaxing and she gets the opportunity to indulge her creative side. Kelly feels privileged to be part of the HummingRaven team where she can use her skills and get creative around showing the products in the best possible light. She loves the fact that the HummingRaven products are hand made in South Africa and that the company is really committed to making a difference in our beautiful country.
Abisha was born into a family where art was a key focus and at the tender age of 7 he started exploring art. As a father of two young kids, a boy and a girl, he puts them first in everything he does. His focus is on educating, supporting and providing for their needs. As a Christian family, they all regularly attend church together. What fills Abisha’s heart with joy is when he is immersed in his art at home surrounded by his kids and his wife, Lucy. He is passionate about teaching the youth different types of art so that it can be passed on from generation to generation. He also has a dream to be able to teach art to unemployed people so that they may be able to do something with their hands and also make a living. On top of this he wants to be able to teach kids art so that they are not tempted into drugs. He would be so grateful for all of his dreams to come true, so he says that he always prays for peace, love and harmony together.
