The Team Behind Woven Bark
BE AN ORIGINAL IN A BOXED-UP WORLD
In 2005 we started Woven Bark – and quickly became corporate South Africa’s go-to for gifting. In 2018 we stopped being crazy about boxed gifts and started obsessing about human connection instead. This led us on a new mission: to swap out the material for the meaningful and to replace the giveaway with a slice of inspired living. And our clients love it!
Curating signature experiences with care and love by business partners Michelle and Lee-Ann (that’s us), is the hallmark of Woven Bark. Today, Woven Bark is the public’s first choice in experience gifting – no presents, only presence.
We believe that in a world filled with material possessions, experiences are the true currency of happiness. We’re on a journey to curate memorable encounters that go beyond traditional gifts, leaving a lasting impact on the hearts and minds of both recipients and givers.
Our team of experience-curators scour the country to discover unique and unforgettable local talent; people we can seamlessly collaborate with to build exclusively designed adventures, workshops, tastings and more.
Our experience packages are designed to inspire the giver in you.
From exclusive wining and dining experiences to thrilling outdoor escapades, from thought-provoking workshops to wellness retreats every WB gift experience is intended to be a world-class occasion; crafted to inspire and enthuse, and to build bonds; to ignite joy, spark curiosity, and leave an imprint (and a selfie) on the lives of others.
Based in South Africa, we build you a private and unique experience anywhere in the country. From corporate to casual, business to home-crafted, we weave with you to make this day in your calendar memorable, sophisticated and fit for friends, private sororities, birthday parties, team appreciation, conferencing or, just because.
Our promise is to bring back the truest feeling of ‘receiving’ – and we can’t wait to share it with you.
