About Us

The Company

African inspired art, crossing times and borders.

Our philosophy

We believe our personal spaces deserve designs with a soul, a story, and a purpose.
Africa, this huge continent, whose craftsmanship is rather little and badly valued in the world, and its art still poorly known to many people, reached out to us.
It’s why we travel all across Africa to develop our exclusive collections of art, home goods and personal accessories. Country by country, we partner with master artisans, blending our modern style with their time-tested techniques. We want to create fair and long-term business relationships and pay a fair price and pre-finance production if necessary.
This is how we are able to offer handmade goods, crafted with the highest quality materials. Also, we have naturally expanded the range of ethnic handicrafts in our store to allow you to discover some of the many facets of the artisans who trust us to transmit their art outside their continent.

Our Mission

We are committed to keeping the best, offering you beautiful products, using natural, raw, hand magnified materials that blend with contemporary styles.

We make sure that each craftsman is remunerated at his fair value, and that his art allows him to support his family. This value and this respect are essential for us, who only wish to transmit a true art of living and a culture beyond borders.

Our Story

Through Artkwaba, we want to celebrate the men and women behind these products. Our name reflects the legendary hospitality of the African people, a collection of individuals – artisans and dreamers – who come together across cultures to create these beautiful collections.

Moreover, Art’Kwaba = Art + Akwaba which means “Welcome” in Akan people (central east of Ivory Coast and the west of Ghana).
Artkwaba is our way of welcoming you and sharing these stories and products with you.

Our commitment

You won’t find everything here – just a handful of precious creations. Each item is handcrafted, hand numbered, and available only in limited quantities to ensure it’s as extraordinary as the culture that inspired it.

Artkwaba brings you authentic collections of original, handcrafted works. Our team selects pieces that are exclusive for their beauty, uniqueness and connection to tradition.
