Decorex 2009

Above: One of our products going up to Decorex this year!

For the second year in a row, The Darling Trust will be taking part in Decorex in Johannesburg from 6-10 August. We are SO excited!

Veyonne Solomon will be going as a representative of the Darling Craft Cooperative, which is a project of The Darling Trust. The products must be delivered to Cape Town on Thursday as they will be taken up by truck in advance. Veyonne will be flying up to Johannesburg next week Wednesday and will be there for a week. It is a very big responsibility to represent the cooperative, but Veyonne is very much up for the challenge. She points out the seriousness of her role - she's representing not only the 5 other women in the cooperative, but also their families who depend on them.

We're working hard to ensure that the Darling Craft Cooperative is fully prepared for this event. And judging by the enthusiasm and hard work, we're going to do brilliantly at Decorex!
