The Amigurumi SA shop was founded in early 2020 and it was started as a passion project because the founder – Marilize Haasbroek – loves amigurumi, crochet, and crafting, and she struggled to find nice tools, notions, and materials in South Africa. The shop was launched with a handful of products that were collected because she wanted to use them herself – from safety eyes in black, clear, blue, brown, and gold in all the sizes to high quality toy stuffing and amigurumi kits.
Between herself and my long-suffering husband, they pack and dispatch all orders while also caring for a busy toddler. When her husband lost his job during the COVID-19 pandemic, Marilize was lucky enough to find full-time work, but that has also meant that it’s become harder to dispatch orders quickly.
Please be patient if you are waiting for an order. We are a small team, and we are truly trying the best we can. Your satisfaction is very important to us and we completely understand if you are frustrated, we only ask for a little kindness and patience in an already-harsh world.
All products are shipped from Brackenfell, Cape Town, South Africa and collections are allowed at this location.
