Ants & Mustard was born out of its founders Noralee and Mike’s desire to offer beautiful and unique products that showcase the craftsmanship, skills, creativity and hard work of people in South Africa and its neighbouring countries.
Ants & Mustard opened its doors in December 2017 in a little town called St Lucia Estuary in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa. Locals and visitors alike always referred to it as the town’s “lovely little shop”.
Now in a bigger space, we continue to offer gifts, souvenirs, and speciality foods sourced both locally and from other African countries.
Since its inception, Ants & Mustard has created a beautifully curated collection of merchandise in both traditional and contemporary designs that are uniquely African and proudly African made.
Daily Harvest Africa is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the upliftment of rural crèches in northern Zululand. For every online purchase of any item for kids, Ants & Mustard will donate 10% of the proceeds to Daily Harvest Africa.
African Wildlife Vets is a non-profit organisation whose mission is to assist with the conservation of threatened and endangered species by providing enhanced veterinary support. For every online purchase of any rhino inspired item, Ants & Mustard will donate 10% of the proceeds to African Wildlife Vets.
