At the helm of Charmaine Jordaan, Nelson Mandela Bay-based entrepreneur, CONQUER has grown into a gorgeous range of ethically and locally made products – from organic soaps to bath salts and beautifully handcrafted ceramic bowls, trinkets and candles. Each one-of-a-kind piece has its own unique mark, feel and passion, with a special story behind each collection and its Xhosa name.
This is CONQUER, a place where creativity is utilized to provide upliftment in the local community.
We are not a charity. We believe in hand-ups, not hand-outs. – Charmaine Jordaan, Owner.
CONQUER products are not only ethically crafted, the brand also believes in uplifting the local community, helping them to help themselves, specifically women. CONQUER is a platform to skill women in the artisanal craft industry by teaching them the relevant skills and providing them with a job or helping them start their own business.
We are putting ALL of these beautiful products on our Christmas wish list, and now you can too! Head over to our Instagram (@theauthentik_za) to see how you can win an UMLILO gift box to the value of R720 for yourself or a loved one!
