A lifelong lover of beautiful things, Irene Held started Indaba in 1990. Inspired by her South African roots, she has always had a passion for handicrafts and sought to share her love of handmade design with North Americans. That passion for living through a lens of beauty resonated deeply with her daughter Alison, and together they travel the world in search of beautiful people, products, and purpose.
Indaba is a Zulu word that means "a gathering of people". By implication it means connection and we are excited to connect with you through our story, our products, and the people who make them.
