Who we are

About Us

We are a Mother & Daughter team who have both grown up on farms all our lives and have a passion for all things natural, from growing our own organic vegetables and healthy wholesome food, to sewing our own clothes because we had a passion for being creative, so this is how the passion for this shop began.

We decided to combine our lifetime of friendship with the knowledge that we have accumulated through our personal lives, to create something that we both felt truly passionate about. After a few glasses of ice cold Kumbucha, and the amazing African summer sun on our faces, "Things We Love" was born. 

Our goal is simple – to ensure beautiful, usable, handcrafted, purely natural products from nature, from us to you.

Our passion translates into a positive working relationship that reflects the true secret to our success. 

What makes us different you ask, well we listen, make an effort to have timely service, have a commitment to excellence, we are concerned, insist on premium quality products and we are happy when you are!

We're a collection of small batch, all natural skin care products, handmade and we believe in natural, ethically produced skincare that works.

Caring for our skins is a much needed daily ritual, for our minds as much as our bodies and simplicity is where it's at.

Transformation

We are passionate about exploring effective methods to bridge the divide between the Private Enterprise, Public and Nonprofit Sectors.

As a small public-goods enterprise, Red Oker serves as an opportunity for us to pursue and develop new channels of diverse sector cooperation. We are enthusiastic about seeing existing manufacturing businesses and industries that are diminishing due to various economical challenges being revived and restored through a transformed approach to manufacturing, marketing and business as a whole.

Responsibility

We believe that every business carries a responsibility to pursue prospects of fighting unemployment. This is to happen through either adapting existing models of operation or creating new opportunities.

A new mindset has to be adapted to fully understand and embrace the significance of this obligation. 

Creativity

We are fanatical about being creative and are using our love for design and constructing as a platform to build our dream.

The design and manufacturing industry in South Africa carry enormous potential to have for greater recognition than what is currently the case. By effective pursuing these prospects, many desperately needed labour opportunities will be created.

The key to any successful business venture is effective partnerships, collaborations and networking.

We are consistently applying ourselves to explore the benefits of association and rewarding relationships, starting from within our own organization, extending our focus across diverse industries and sectors.
