In 2015, industrial engineering graduate Vusani Ravele received a cordless drill as a Valentine’s gift and it changed the course of his life. “I couldn’t stop drilling holes into things!” he says with a grin. “I found myself making all sorts of items, starting with a mini chest of drawers.” His next purchase was a CNC machine and, fast forward a few years, he’s now the founder and owner of online home accessories store Native Décor. His products, which include wine-holders, lighting, clocks, coasters, wall art, pot plants and magazine racks, are made from high quality, sustainable plywood. Visit or call 011 783 9600.
