Peek – www.peek.org.za – is South Africa’s first digital portal dedicated to visually showcasing beautiful craft and design products made in South Africa.

It provides a platform for SA businesses anywhere in the country to showcase their work to a local and global audience, highlighting the very best of what South Africa has to offer.

And, it’s free to use!

Peek is an initiative of the Craft and Design Institute (CDI) and proudly sponsored by the South African Department of Small Business Development. It is a search and connect site that is free to use. No trade happens on the site but potential customers are directed to wherever a business is selling.
