Description

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to connect the world to Africa through beautiful art and captivating craftsmanship; showcasing years of mastery to enrich the lives of everyone we work with; our customers, our artisans, their families and their local communities.

WHAT WE DO

We offer unique art & home decor accents inspired by the African safari experience.
100% hand crafted in East Africa.

HOW WE DO IT

For most of our products, we work with the largest hand crafting union in Kenya which has over 2,000 members, picking the finest craftsmen & women based on their innovation & unique expertise. We also go out into local markets and search for truly unique artists & artisans, featuring exceptional products encompassing Africa & its beauty.

WHY WE DO IT

The last decade has seen political unrest & devastating terrorist attacks ravage the tourism industry in Kenya, the largest service sector in East Africa’s economy. For an industry that relies mostly on visitors from around the world, hand crafting has seen a 60% decline during the same period. With employment opportunities already very limited in the country, we could not stand by & watch authentic century-old traditions slowly fade away. We want to revive a dying industry; empower the local communities through job creation & recognition of their unique skills.
