Design Afrika - Revitalizing the ancient craft of African basket weaving

Design Afrika TOTEM new showroom - June 2024

DESIGN AFRIKA specializes in finely crafted hand-woven basketry and has over many years developed close relationships with rural weaving communities across Africa.

Through the global marketing of the work of these weavers, mostly women in rural areas, we strive to develop their economic independence while ensuring that their important traditional skills are not lost.

Over 25 years, Design Afrika has been a wholesale supplier to retail stores from Los Angeles to Tokyo, Santiago to Oslo.

We have a fabulous range of baskets, textiles from all over Africa, old artifacts, ceramics, cloth and wooden pieces in our Woodstock showroom, and at the Oranjezicht City Farm Market,  and you can also shop a hand-picked selection of some of our favourite baskets and fabrics right here!
