About Us

Welcome to Umenzi Designs, a creative wonderland where personalized tumblers, gifts, jewelry, and home decor come to life! I'm Simone, a passionate artisan and a mom of four adorable kids – they're my endless inspiration and motivation.

Crafting is in my blood, and I'm always up for a challenge, eager to master new art forms. From sewing to baking and decorating scrumptious cakes and cakepops, and from crafting intricate paper creations to diving into the captivating world of resin and tumbler making – there's no creative endeavor I won't explore.

Growing up in the vibrant city of Johannesburg, South Africa, left an indelible mark on my heart. Fond memories of my childhood inspired me to infuse my South African roots into the very fabric of my business. And thus, Umenzi Designs was born in late 2015, a platform for me to share my creativity and passion with the world.

Umenzi, meaning "maker" or "doer" in Zulu, truly reflects the spirit of what I do. Each product is lovingly handcrafted with utmost care and attention to detail. But that's not all – there's more to my story.

Elephants hold a special place in my heart; they're my favorite animals. Symbolizing strength and power across many African and global cultures, the majestic elephant serves as a powerful focal point in our logo. It represents the essence of what I wish to convey through my creations – that sense of strength and empowerment that you, our dear customers, deserve.

So, whether you're searching for a thoughtful gift or looking to adorn your home with unique and personalized decor, I invite you to explore our world of artistry and imagination. Each piece is crafted with love and dedication, ensuring it brings joy to your life or the life of someone special.

Should you have any questions or personalized requests, don't hesitate to reach out. Your satisfaction is our top priority, and I'm here to tailor my services to meet your needs.

Thank you for gracing us with your presence and for being a part of our creative journey. Your support means the world to me and my family.

With love and creativity,
