There is an Angel Factory in the Karoo... The surrounding semi-desert landscape is arid, stark and striking - endless dry plains, mountains and scrublands. But here you will find angels... Unique African angels, skillfully crafted by hand, pure as the crystal clear air that surrounds the Vondeling and Rietbron crafters who make them.
And from this factory thousands of angels every year fly to other places, other countries, other cultures. This is the story of how it all started.
The story begins with a small craft project in a tiny and remote village in the beautiful Baviaans area of the Karoo semi-desert in South Africa. The name of the village is Vondeling, the craft project takes the name Vondeling Optel Craft, and the year is 2006. More than 10 years later the Karoo Angels tell a story about how small feather and wire angels, 100% made by hand, could dazzle and charm thousands of people all around the world, and put a forgotten village and forgotten people back on the map once again.
Joined in 2015 by Rietbron Craft, the Angel Factory now have two branches, and under the name of Karoo Angels the two craft groups are embarking on a new and exciting chapter, set out to make the angels known all over the world.
