    Story & Highlights

    FOUNDER: Katherine-Mary Pichulik

    TEAM: 13 full-time employees

    LOCATION: Cape Town, South Africa

    MATERIALS: Upcycled ropes, glass beads, hand carved agate Ghanan carnelian, and semi-precious stones

    At Pichulik, a team of vibrant women handcrafts each piece in our Cape Town studio. Pichulik supports women empowerment by employing, collaborating, and outsourcing to local women-owned businesses, promoting job creation and economic activity. Every jewelry piece is a masterpiece, crafted by a single artist mastering various skills. Inspired by Africa and its adventures, the brand's designs use ropes and found materials for a unique touch.

    Pichulik is inspired by ancient traditions and myths, expressing their wisdom through African artistry. The brand's goal is to celebrate the courage and beauty of all women everywhere, and their message is simple: 'You are Enough".

    Pichulik predominantly uses overruns of Polypropylene rope (PPM) number 5 on the recyclable chart. These over-runs are the bits remaining from the yachting and sailing industry.

    The other components include glass beads, hand carved agate Ghanan carnelian, and semi-precious stones sourced locally. All off-cuts from crafting are used for producing new pieces of jewelry.
