Functional handicrafts from Africa.

So often, we need things around the house, and we have tried to find a range of handicrafts from Africa that are not only useful, but fun, pretty and original

We have items for all ages, men and women, so we hope you will enjoy looking.

There are money boxes, to help save up for something special, a range of animal boxes from Swaziland, and beaded ones from Kenya. We have an assortment of hooks for around the house, and candle holders for indoor or outdoor use. Bookmarks, jug nets, and more. Happy hunting.
