Lizl Naude is a Social Entrepreneur from Cape Town, South Africa. She heads up her design business Lilly Loompa, a company that creates beautiful homeware made by upcycling waste material.
Lizl is a self-taught designer and initially started designing and making furniture because she couldn’t afford to buy new pieces to furnish her home. As an Innovator, she lives by her motto: “Use what you have”, and this philosophy has led her to start a movement of converting junk into beautiful, usable products. Motivated by frequent mistakes and learning, she is a promoter of positive social change through design and innovation.
Lilly Loompa Creative is a South African brand known to many eco-conscious homeware consumers for its inventive hip cycling approach to transforming discarded waste into design-conscious items for people to love.
The company manufactures a variety of products, from storage holders, lamps, to dinner table accessories, among others. All materials are carefully sourced from waste and sustainably reimagined as beautiful, yet purposeful products. Eco-friendly, handcrafted and 100% South African, each Lilly Loompa piece, once trash, is now a meaningful piece of treasure.
Founder, Lizl Naude, has just launched the latest must-have product which is already getting people talking – the My Africa Lap Desk. This portable piece of furniture is just the thing for home workers who want to create a comfortable yet stylish desk solution. My Africa Lap Desk is a great option for those who work from home and need a desk to aid with posture. It can be used as a desk for your laptop, a breakfast tray and a reading table whilst sitting in bed. It was made using upcycled Birchwood and has a beautiful natural finish.
Lizl Naude biggest wish for those who buy and use the My Africa Lap Desk is that every time they use this beautiful lap desk, she hopes that they consider the work they do on it, and how it impacts our beautiful continent.
Besides being an entrepreneur, she is a Director of The Chosen Foundation, a Non-profit company focusing on restoring families through facilitated training and travelling.
We commend Lizl Naude for her impressive creative potential. Keep up the great works.
