Palesa reflects the magnificent balance of qualities that characterise women. The softer virtues of compassion and empathy complimented by the stronger virtues of determination and willpower. It specifically embodies the richness and fullness of South African women. Their unbreakable spirit and exceptional durability.

“ The strength of a woman can carry the weight of the world.”



African women are the mothers of the nation, the pillars of strength. They are the country’s conscience and the social glue that keeps us all together.

They create change which is what Fairtrade is built upon. Through our Palesa sales we support various community projects and positive change.
