kanju is a luxury interiors and décor brand partnered with fine artists and artisan groups across the African continent. A collaborative ethos defines kanju’s approach to design and curation, evident in comprehensive collections and distinctive limited edition series.
Mohair is one of the oldest natural fibers known to man. kanju's luxurious Mohair rugs are handspun, dyed and handwoven by skilled artisans in South Africa. Mohair soaks color much like silk allowing for an almost endless range of jewel-toned and pastel colors. The fiber is referred to as the "diamond fiber" for its strength and resiliency and is clipped from the Angora Goats that roam the remote and beautiful Karoo Desert, from which the master weavers draw much inspiration for their contemporary and whimsical patterns.
The word kanju translates to “creativity born of struggle” or “making more with less.” Nothing could be truer of the exquisite pieces and talented artisans with whom kanju works across the African continent.
