Original T-Bag Designs

Original T-Bag Designs was born out of a need to improve the lives of impoverished South Africans. Previously disadvantaged individuals from Imizamo Yethu Township in Hout Bay work with Original T-Bag Designs to create greeting cards, artwork and a variety of other products made from recycled tea bags.

Enjoy a cup of tea in the store and see how the used tea bags are dried, emptied, ironed and then painted in the individual style of the artist. These tea bags are then applied to stationery, wooden boxes, trays, coasters and other décor items, the perfect gift or souvenir to take home from South Africa.
