Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Cape Town

Original T-Bag Designs makes 'Functional Art' out of recycled used, dried tea bags. Each artist has their own individual styles and patterns. There may be similarities, but none are identical. These miniature works of art are then applied to stationary, wooden items like boxes, trays and coasters and even fabric items!

Original T-Bag Designs is sustained by the commitment, effort and faith of those involved. Jill, now known as 'the t-bag lady' with her t-bag team, has created an environment where people have gained more than employment. An environment that give and take support and friendship, has created in reality confidence, pride, responsibility and perseverance. Lives are nurtured, each one an asset to the success of T-Bag Designs today.
