Story Behind the Art:
Ben Ncube started B and B Craft Recycling as an individual artisan working in the new South African tradition of making crafts from recycled materials such as tin cans and discarded wire. As the demand for the products he made grew Ben the Can Man started training apprentices in the art form paying them a fair price for the products they produced. The training and production provides a sustainable income for a growing number of young people in Cape Town.
