It is not only in Germany that workmen and deadlines pose a challenge. Therefore, a little patience is necessary. We only recommend our service for items whose delivery time is not critical.
Be creative! You can order all products that can be
a) produced by a craftsman
b) delivered by a parcel-shipping company
Our aim is to develop export-worthy products with your help. We place no limits on your creativity. Think of wood, of cloth, of stone, of metal; think of everything. Just about every idea is worth enquiring about.
We would recommend taking the price which the same hand-crafted product would cost in Europe as a guide. Just not the industry price at IKEA.
The reason for this: Wages in developing countries are considerably lower than in Europe. However, there are several external factors which slow down the production of items in developing countries, making them more expensive, e.g., the required machines are not always available, resulting in more time-consuming handiwork. For instance, power blackouts are a daily occurrence in Nigeria and lead to extra costs. In addition to that, transport and our commission must be considered. We give you a transparent representation of what makes up the cost of your particular product.
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
