Manufacturing of Tableware and Gifting

Lumela is a job creation project focusing on the employment of single mothers and men from the local townships of Sharpeville, Sebokeng and Orange Farm. None of our hand crafted items are completely identical and all are made with tons of love and attention to detail.  Lumela, however, is not just about bright, fun products – it is about empowerment and upliftment.

At Lumela we want to colour your life happy – Lumela is renowned for its fun, funky, fabulous products.

Lumela was founded in 1995 as a job creation project to positively change the lives of our local men, woman and children, through sustainable employment as well as ongoing support to more children’s homes.  22 years later our range has expanded in leaps and bounds, and is now sold across borders and includes an exclusive range of hand painted table enamelware, pure white porcelain table enamelware and wooden giftware, as well as a host of other bright fun accessories.  With our unique enamel designs and products we have also ventured into fabulous corporate giftware.


Our mission is 3-fold:

Product mission – to create products of the highest standard both aesthetically and functionally.

Company mission – to provide friendly, reliable and efficient service to our clients.

Social mission  – we strive to actively recognize the pivotal role that business can play in improving the quality of life of local people.

We are proudly South African and export to many countries in Africa, including Namibia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Kenya and Tanzania. Our overseas exports include UK, Holland, Australia, Mauritius, Canada and Finland.


Although Lumela is about fun funkiness and functionality, we do work with our hearts as well and we know that we can make a difference by acting responsibly. At Lumela it is important for us to be socially responsible and have an ethical approach to doing business.

The majority of our products are hand painted or crafted in our factory in Vereeniging Gauteng SA.

Apart from creating employment for people without skills we are also involved with local children’s charities.  We know that we can’t help everybody but everybody including Lumela can help somebody.
