Design Afrika

Since 1995, Design Afrika has been sourcing and designing unique homeware from all over Africa.

Founder Binky Newman spends a great deal of time in remote villages around Africa, working with marginalised women who have an ancient heritage of weaving baskets. Using traditional weaving techniques and stitches, Design Afrika creates objects with a deeper story, blurring the boundaries between design and craft. This year’s collection focusses and celebrates the use of geometrics, in hand woven, organic and manmade materials.
