My name is Danielle and I’m excited to introduce you to African Creative. Our company has the most unique and beautiful products handmade by the African people.
You may wonder how I got involved with this as I’m in Edmonton and Africa is a long way from home. My mother in law was from South Africa and my husband and I were lucky to travel there, meet his extended family and I found an immediate connection to this diverse country.
Despite having its political ups and downs, Africa is a fascinating country and it’s artwork shows it. From the stunning bead-work, to the intricate baskets and the cute stuffed penguins, there is a lot to choose from.
Our company also has an ethical base and the commitment to build sustainable livelihoods across Africa. We work to make the least impact on the environment while making the most impact in communities. These products are all handmade, unique and GORGEOUS!!
I will tell you each week, a little about the people who make the products and how you can use them in your home decor, or dress up your wardrobe.
Juju hats, Namji dolls, Elephant hair jewellery. Sounds interesting? Well, keep reading to find out more.
