the founder

Like a piece of coastal drift, my life-journey started in Malawi, then on to Europe, a short stint in Zimbabwe; 

and I have been settled in Australia for sixteen years, most recently on Sydney's stunning Northern Beaches. 

With over 20 years of buying, renovating and styling properties in the UK and Australia, and a career in design and marketing; in 2014 I combined life and career into business. 

I am passionate about supporting the highly-skilled artisans of south east region of Africa; their families

and communities. ​I am equally driven to ensure our end-Clients and their customers receive high-quality, durable and genuine products made from sustainable natural materials. 

Thank you for bringing these unique African pieces into your stores and homes and in-turn protecting African traditions, heritage and livelihoods.
