Contemporary African design

The boundaries between art and craft blur in Africa. Useful objects are made from sustainable or recycled materials, and are both functional and beautiful.

Long-standing traditional techniques of weaving, basket-making, pottery and art now resonate with the global, interconnected world in which we live. We now consider who made a thing, how they made it, and what it is made of.

Because these objects are all handmade, we feel a connection with the creatives who made them. It fits in with our ideals of not having too much, and nothing that we do not find useful or beautiful.

And knowing that we are not damaging the earth or its inhabitants is in line with our sense of integrity and honesty. It is even nicer to know that we are helping communities survive, by providing them with a source of income, and a chance of education for their children.
