Halo Dish Covers brings a fresh approach to home, dining, reduced waste living and functional gifts.
Acting as Nature's Guardian Angel, Halo Dish Covers offer hope to South Africans by creating much-needed employment opportunities and saving our environment from single-use plastic waste.
Halo tells a fantastic story with South African artists' beautiful print designs, new eco-friendly packaging, and easy, informative free-standing display boxes.
A time to grow
Focus is on developing and retailing functional products that could be made by women working from home. When it came time for their other brand Spaza to grow, they knew that growth could not be for growth’s sake.
Growth is to develop communities of like-minded people and work together towards better business practices and create job opportunities for young South Africans.
Change needs to mean less waste, and directly, less single-use plastics.
Made in South Africa
South Africa has an alarming rate of 29,1% unemployment. Besides, the unemployment rate of the youth under the age of 25 is 58.2%!
Halo Dish Covers are currently working with and uplifting existing manufactures and cooperatives who have facilities and seamstresses but do not have sufficient work to support their staff and members.
The Halo Dish Covers team works closely with our manufacturing partners, advisors and training institutions to provide training and equipment to produce consistently excellent quality sustainably and efficiently.
Opportunities for artists
Twice a year, Halo Dish Cover’s brand team, brainstorm design themes for prints on their dish covers. They make public a ‘call-out’ via colleges and universities, social media and their database of up and coming designers inviting the young designer to submit a one-page pitch on their chosen theme.
South African young professionals gain experience in pitching work, making a presentation, and meeting a deadline. If their concept wins, they build out the idea to fit the many different sizes and shapes of dish covers in the Halo Dish Covers range.
Halo Dish covers supports artists throughout the processes. The remuneration artists receive, allows them to make substantial advances in their careers by buying equipment, producing a body of work for an exhibition or paying school fees. Besides work experience and money, the artists also have an opportunity to tell their story, share their work, and see how their art can make the world a better place.
