3rd Kid Creations sells personalised handmade chef sets, rain ponchos and other items for families.
Farayi Chikwete is a mom of 3, who works from her home in Plumstead, Cape Town. In 2013, while she was on maternity leave with her youngest child, her eldest daughter started Grade R and needed a raincoat. When she couldn’t find anything suitable, she decided to make one herself. The rain ponchos were a hit, because they are easy to wear, roomy, durable and had cute hand-painted pictures and orders began coming in. And that’s when 3rd Kid Creations was born.
3rd Kid Creations is special because each customer gets the chance to be the designer too. Farayi takes the time to listen to their story and help them choose the best colours, fabrics or designs for their order. People call her for cooking and baking birthday parties, needing chef aprons and hats that are a certain colour or theme, and she really loves helping them. “I feel like I am a part of their experience. It’s great when a mum calls for an apron for their child and we design it according to the child’s likes which makes it super special and unique. Every order is fun and special.”
It normally takes about 1-2 working days to complete a small order. Farayi also goes out of her way to accomodate last minute orders where possible. “I have had a lot of parents call in a panic looking for an apron for school which they needed by the next day! It was promptly done in a few hours and the day was saved. I love that feeling.”
3rd Kid Creations also caters for bulk customers like cooking schools or hotels and promotional events. Due to demand, adult aprons and hats are also available. The product line is continuously growing as the ideas keep coming.
