Handmade Must-Haves

We travel across Africa looking for uniquely beautiful, quality products. When we see something we love, of good quality, we share it here with you.

Our ethos is one of Fairtrade, community upliftment and empowering women. We aim specifically to bring to the world quality artisanal crafted products through upliftment. Where the artisan, truly, has been given fair pay for their skills and work in ethical working conditions.

Almost 100% of our suppliers are women owned and run enterprises. They expressly hold the values that we at The African Artisan see as absolutes. It is our aim to work with suppliers that empower the local communities through skills education, gainful employment and upliftment projects.  In doing so, these businesses bring about economic sustainability to these communities.
