Support a Local Artist Expand his bussiness

This artist is known as ‘Spider’ Kapeya Kangolo. He visits bars & restaurants to collect bottle tops, for his art, design work and business.

This has been a way of life for Kapeya popularly known as Spider, for nearly 20 years. “Some people come with their own designs and I make for them whatever they want,” he says, citing bar counter stools as the best sellers, with demand for them at around K300 each. Lounge chairs cost about K600, tables come in at K750, and a vegetable rack fetches K250.

Spider hopes to expand his business to other parts of the country in addition to the tourist capital, Livingstone, where he currently sends his products.

He claims that from the bottle top business he manages to support his family. He sells his products at the Arcades Sunday market and at the Dutch monthly market in Kabulonga.
