How it works

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.

CO2 neutral delivery

Shipping your item to your doorstep consumes less CO2 than driving to a nearby craftsperson with your car. Nevertheless we buy CO2 compensation certificates for your order.

Made in Africa

You get your item realized in direct contact and exchange with an artisan in Kenya, Rwanda or Ghana.
