Maid in Africa

Micha and Andrew Weir's Maid in Africa is a design studio, originally from Namibia but now based in Cape Town, that convert fine art into utility objects.

All products are designed in-house using techniques such as silk screen, hand painting and digital printing. Maid in Africa celebrates free enterprise and free-range chicken with their Shak prints, and depicts Cape Town's slave-trade history with their Slave to Fashion range, using every day brands such as armite, Get Rich and Lucky Star that have become part of the African visual identity.
