At Smacs* we love cleaver ideas. Nothing makes us more excited than discovering innovative, beautiful products! And we have sourced something so cool it will make your friends go green with envy. Smacs* are now proud, exclusive stockiest of the local brand Sweet Potato.
Seven budding entrepreneurs from UCT who completed their postgraduate entrepreneurship programme in 2012 started Sweet Potato. They were given a project as part of their course, to come up with an idea for a business with just R50 start up capital.
This group of young people were faced with the challenge to make laptops and tablets more individual, extraordinary and planet friendly and came up with a concept of recycling hessian coffee bags from around the world as well as up-cycling material books to create their vintage, durable and protective laptop and tablet sleeves. Each sleeve is unique and a one of a kind piece, without compromising on quality and positioned to be affordable.
The products have been designed with passion and made by local hands. As 2012 came to an end and the group members went their separate ways, Smacs* took over all their stock – we are now the exclusive stockiest and stock is limited!
