A collection of handmade contemporary cushions focusing on texture and original design, guided by environmental kindness and community upliftment...
The journey began in 2012, learning the skills as a mindful and meditative activity, which naturally turned into a much loved hobby and evolved into a small business. It is so satisfying to work at something that you love every day!
Expanding our textiles collection was something that we have wanted to do for some time now, but we really wanted our partners to be extremely unique. We knew we found the right match with Cotton Tree. These pillows are absolutely stunning and the knitting is like nothing we have ever seen. But don't take it from us, read what our lovely customer Leslie, one of the first customers to order an Afriscandi Sunrise Pillow, just sent us today...Dear Kanju Team,
Design Afrika was established in 1995 by Binky Newman after 15 years of involvement in various aspects of African craft. She had just left the Okavango Delta, where she had run a wilderness camp for five years, taking with her the intricately woven baskets of the Hambukushu women. These became the first products in the Design Afrika collection of finely made handwork. Binky’s passion for baskets has taken her to many remote parts of the continent to track down weavers and she is now an acknowledged reference in African basketry.
While we have been partners with Design Afrika for quite a while, we received some stunning new baskets from them this year with gorgeous curves and weaving detail. There are so many ways to use these amazing baskets, but as a nod to the holiday season, the Munyumbwe shopping basket would make an amazing gift basket that could be filled with everything from baked goods to wine and cheese.
