AFRICAN DESIGN

We created this collection in response to the dearth of quality, affordable African design being marketed and distributed in the US.  Search “African design” on the web and you’re likely to be met with bold, bright color blocking and tribal motifs.  Search “safari” and you’re equally likely to find pith helmets and hunting rifles.  We eschew both of these clichés by selecting items from partners who weave together European and African design while avoiding overt references to both European high design and African tribal art.  The result is a contemporary “safari chic” that is at once relaxed and inviting; cool and alive; that is neither colonial nor primitive, but indigenous.  Of Africa.
