OUR APPROACH 

How we do it

Our approach for developing innovative artisan programmes is grounded in the deep insights we learn from hundreds of marginalized entrepreneurs across Africa and our face-to-face interaction with hundreds of artisans in their cities each year.

It is the collective voice of these entrepreneurs that directly shapes the models we build to support them. This approach gives us confidence that we can deliver what these entrepreneurs truly want and need.

The Afrikapu Process

Share

Our artisans come from four different ethnic groups across Africa: They share their skills, culture and stories with us. We work with approximately 50(?) artisans across the continent.

Design

We design limited-edition, ethically-made handicrafts, accessories and jewellery that reinterpret traditional artistry and preserves our artisans’ skills.

Train

We work directly with our artisan groups to begin sampling our designs or launching a design collaboration. We work with our artisans who are eager to share their creative vision and find new ways to reinvent beautiful new variations on traditional themes.

Materials

Our products are created from recycled materials, and our packaging and operations are eco-friendly, making it an environmentally responsible enterprise.
