Get your unique custom made item
Forget about buying items from mass production.
We only do single items
Every item from us is unique and custom made for you. That means your item will be as unique as you and your artisan.
Fair & Transparent
We provide a fully transparent shopping experience. You get all details about who earns what. You even get the phone number from your craftsman to double check.
Made in Africa
You get your item realized in direct contact and exchange with an artisan in Kenya, Rwanda or Ghana.
It is super easy – just describe your idea
No matter if you like “a green leather bag, 30cm high” or “a cutlery tray, 50 by 45 by 10 cm” or a “piece of art“, whatever it is, just describe it and our expert will ask all the relevant questions to help realize your idea
