Design Afrika

Since 2005 Binky Newman has been designing and developing unique and original collections of traditional and contemporary pieces produced throughout Africa, specializing in woven baskets.
The Design Afrika team strives to nurture the creative and entrepreneurial initiative of rural communities by encouraging the creation of these high quality products, interpreting contemporary trends, and ensuring that these pieces establish an intrinsic worth and importance in the design world.
Focussing on products made by highly skilled crafts people often means traveling to remote areas, to workshop new designs or in the hope of finding a basket that was previously thought to be extinct. By promoting well-made, reasonably priced, functional and artistic craft, Design Afrika aims to contribute to the emergence of Africa as a source of inspiration and spiritual strength.
