Wonderbag

Wonderbag- South Africa

This South African brand’s name speaks for itself but perhaps what makes it more interesting is the use of colourful Ankara prints for their innovative product: a low maintenance non-electric, portable slow cooker.  The idea was created by Sarah Collins in 2008 and took close to 2 years to establish.

It has, since 2012,  produced close to a million products and can be found in the homes of many South Africans, Kenyans, Rwandans as well as in Jordan and Syria.  For every cooker that is bought, a dollar goes into the Wonderbag foundation that supports women from deprived areas to afford to cook for their families.
