Worx of Africa Monkey Apple Balls

Monkey Apple Balls
 
Worx of Africa is an equal opportunity employer, and adhere to Fair trade Principles.

Worx of Africa employs 70 people in 3 factories. Gathering of Monkey Balls is done by unemployed people in rural areas, and provides a valuable source of income to families who would otherwise have little or none. The harvesting of the balls also protects the trees from being cut for firewood.

These items take time to make and thus also provide much needed jobs. Unique and designed with flair – these items are African in inspiration, origin and manufacture

 
 
They do actually grow on trees
Strychnos spinosa (Monkey Apple)
 
Local villagers harvest the balls which are
delivered to the Worx factory in Hazyview
 
 
Once the skin is removed the balls are dried
for nearly 12 months
 
Once dried they are sorted into bags and
delivered to the workshop in White River
 
 
 
In the workshop the balls are then made into different products with different finishes
 
After almost a year, local artists decorate the
balls – no two balls are alike
