As one of South Africas best known NGOs Wola Nani has developed an income generation initiative through the global appeal and success of their paper bowls that now provides employment for over 40 HIV positive craftswomen. This project developed new ideas and directions for products and manufacturing techniques celebrating the craft workers skill and the ad hoc simplicity of the original laminated paper bowls. Working with the crafters the project explored the process of making as well as the qualities of paper to develop new and innovative lighting designs.
