Brand: Design Afrika
One of Design Afrika’s home grown range of unique organic shaped vessels, hugely successful around the world and revitalizing the ancient craft of African basket weaving
Design Afrika designs, markets and promotes finely crafted hand woven basketry and fabrics in an ethical and sustainable manner. They are based in Cape Town, South Africa.
Since 1995, Design Afrika has been sourcing and designing unique homeware from all over Africa. Founder Binky Newman spends a great deal of time in remote villages around Africa, working with marginalised women who have an ancient heritage of weaving baskets. Using traditional weaving techniques and stitches, Design Afrika creates objects with a deeper story, blurring the boundaries between design and craft. They exhibit at Maison et Objet in Paris annually.
