About Vondeling angels
…everybody loves a good story – this is the story of an angel factory in the Karoo…
Situated on the harsh Karoo in South Africa lies the village of Vondeling, home of 23 families. They live without electricity, running water or other amenities. While unemployment was high they gained the opportunity to learn a new craft. They set up an angel factory that now helps support the entire village.
The angels are knitted or crocheted in thin metal wire and adorned with feathers and pearls – every angel is unique. They are named after the women that work in the angel factory.
