what we do

African Design Collective is an artisan-driven collection of women’s and home goods sold online. It was founded in 2018 to showcase the work of mainly female creatives in Africa or expats from Africa - starting with a small collection of hats and homeware.

Our goal is to help up-and-coming African designers by increasing their visibility and connecting them with consumers outside the continent.

At the same time we create employment opportunities for textile workers and artisans from Africa by commissioning products. Not only do we love handmade products, we also love supporting people and their talent.

We see our ideal customer as someone who loves beautiful, well-made items, care about the world, have an interest in human rights and the arts
