Nkuku

Just before diving into the weekend, I wanted to share with you this beautiful found. Nkuku specialises in stylish, ecofriendly and fair trade gifts. It was founded after a year travelling and working in Africa and India, meeting artisans, and witnessing their astounding skills but challenging living standards and restricted opportunities. All their products are inspired by the traditional skills of artisans throughout Africa and India. The name ‘Nkuku’ was borrowed from a village in Zambia. Nkuku combines contemporary designs with age-old techniques, natural materials and sustainable methods of production to ensure each product is truly exceptional.

What a lovely story. And how I wish one day I could run something like this..

Have a look at some of their marvellous products:





Aren't these Christmas decorations in the top picture great? They are baubles hand made from paper mache and hand painted by craftspeople from Kashmir. Available at Nkuku or Notonthehighstreet.

Have a great weekend!
