About Mambu Design

MAMBU DESIGN is a uniquely South African company of Artists and craftsman who create beautifully original ostrich egg shell jewellery.

“MAMBU” from the word Kanemambu  means “thank you in Shangane, which is a widely spoken language in Southern Africa.

Founded twelve years ago by Dominic McCabe and Francoise De Oliveira, a husband and wife collaboration, both with Fine Arts and commercial backgrounds. This company now has a solid and dedicated team of 22 craftsman, some of whom have been with us for over 20 years.

As a team, MAMBU DESIGN has a strong sense of family with a quest for equality and fairness in all that they produce and the manner in which production takes place.

From us to you with love!
