Shipping Policy

Local Shipping

As a result of our minimum stock holding, we require 7 – 14 working days for all Shweshwe product orders. Please allow for a 4 – 8 week lead time on artisan products that are not in stock. The long lead time is a result of the artisans not holding stock, the timeous nature of hand made products and the artisans rural location. We guarantee the wait will be worth your while.Complete orders will be dispatched via courier (The Courier Guy is our preferred service provider) as soon as the order has been consolidated and quality checked. Allow 4 working days for order receipt from the despatch date for all national door to door courier deliveries.

A flat courier rate of R110 applies on all nationwide deliveries.

Please select local collection when processing your order. my love for africa will contact you when your order has been packed and is ready for collection.
