The Bili Team
With a nod to South Africa's Rainbow Nation, this team of 9 women celebrate this nation's colourful diversity and unique character by crafting products to match. The team has embarked on a meaningful and significant journey to discover, appreciate and grow together.
One of the projects undertaken by the team during 2017 was for each crafter to design their own pair of straps. Bili Beadwear founder and managing member, Lindsay Fisher, sat with each lady to think through the design process. They created their own templates, combined their own colour schemes thereby unlocking their own creative talents. Each lady wears her own creation enabling a first hand experience of our product.
