Mel&Kai was started in Port Elizabeth by Ronelle after she fell in love with the vibrant Kanga and Kitenge material during her 7-year residency in Tanzania.  Upon return to South Africa, she decided to import the beautiful fabric and started Mel&Kai alongside craftsman Russel, who creates the Mel&Kai products of her dreams.  The team was later joined by Orpah, who does the finer beadwork and sticthing.  Together the three of them have created a range of products that uses colour to bring any room to life.
