About Our Products
Our goal is to source products made from organic components including plant fibers, resin, bone, horn and earth metals as well as recycled materials.
Crafted by Hand
Because many of our items are handcrafted by the artisans of a particular ethnic group or region, they are difficult to find anywhere else! Items may have imperfections from production process or may not be identical due to handmade nature.
Made in Africa
Shop our curated catalog of items produced across the African continent. We pride ourselves on finding unique adornments that are sustainable and ethical!
At The Afrikan Aesthetic we believe in showing off the beauty & practicality of ethnic goods while respecting the cultural identity of others and upholding a standard of quality and transparency. We admire the fair-trade model and make great efforts to source products ethically directly from the collectives, artisans &/or non-profit organizations involved whenever possible.
In our quest to bring you inspiring, authentic handmade products, our long-term mission is to create a commerce model that gives back to others. By doing business with artisans in low-resource and developing countries, they can generate enough income to provide for their families as well as uplift their communities. We will continue to do our part by partnering with local craftsmen & craftswomen to promote the principles of fair-trade, ethically sourced goods and sustainable consumerism.
We hope you find a unique piece (or two!) in our shop that resonates with you and that you can connect with. We invite you to experience and enjoy the Afrikan Aesthetic.
