deep dark africa

i have always really enjoyed the deepdarkafrica site and all of their incredible products. per their website, "Deep Dark Africa brings you contemporary handmade design from Africa. Carefully selected hand designed and made pieces created by or in collaboration with a diverse range of local artisans, designers & crafters, Deep Dark Africa aims to promote this uniquely talented continent & its rich creativity, showing that African design is evolving whilst still holding firm to it's handmade roots. Wherever one is in Africa, someone is trying to sell beautiful handmade goods, truly believing in their art as a means to a better life. Deep Dark Africa is born out of a desire to showcase this creative talent to a wider contemporary market & make it accessible to all whilst at the same time bridging the gap between established African artists and those without access to a greater market. Deep Dark Africa loves handmade, believes in fair trade and aims to be as eco-friendly as possible".

pretty amazing, huh?

anyways, some of my favorites are below.

which items from dda do you love? it's a shame i don't have an endless fortune in times like this!
