Founded in 2013 by Damian and Angela Goliath, WoodiZ presents natural, sustainable and fashionable woodcraft to the streets of Jozi. A Johannesburg based enterprise that is inspired by the way the youth and the pop culture industry is transforming the streets of Jo’burg into a hub of creative freedom of expression in various forms and mediums.
The WoodiZ team has a passion for unconventional fashion trends both locally and internationally. “Our concept is to merge our passion for wood and fashion, with our own signature style” says Angela Goliath “Our goal is to provide affordable high end, high quality products that are unique and eye-catching”.
Comprising of a creative and talented team, and utilising “old school” machinery and hand craftsmanship, WoodiZ began its primary range of wooden eyewear and bowties.
WoodiZ also has a strong belief in sustainable economic growth and thus support the informal South African business sector; by outsourcing and building strong relationships in support of its products. WoodiZ also supports nature conservation by donating a percentage of its profits to Greenpop a social enterprise with a tree planting initiative.
This is just the beginning for WoodiZ, as it plans to launch unique and exciting products in the New Year; Snap Back Caps, Watches, Back Packs and more...all with epic wooden and African print elements to them. WoodiZ will be launching its online store just in time for Christmas so keep an eye out. In the meantime you catch them at various Markets around Gauteng; Arts on Main, The Collective, Locrate Market, Brooklyn Design Fair.
