Philippa du toit started this as a poverty alleviation project she was determined to make a difference Mud was truly born out of poverty out of hope and out of the will to make that difference.
The early years of mud was manufacturing beautiful and bespoke handmade pieces of ceramics with a few shops buying the goods then in 2003 the bead project was started , this project was started in a small town called Clocolaan where Mud wanted to make a difference, the bead project, working with illiterate and destitute people, used mud's recycled clay to handmade clay beads. This lead to sustainable business but it was struggling, Philippa's husband Werner jumped in and decided to design the first clay bead chandelier this was early in 2004.
This marks the birth and the blossoming of the Original Mud Chandelier© From this point the Original Mud Chandelier© changed numerous lives touched and created jobs all over the world.
