The Nala Pom Pom Box in Dusk above and below is a lovely decorative box perfect for keeping small items. Use this small lidded basket for jewelry storage, or simply as a decorative accent in any room. This uniquely shaped container brings a touch of authentic African basketweaving to modern urban home decor. Weaving together natural colored fiber with deep navy blue, this whimsical basket beautifully integrates contemporary African design with any home decor.
Contemporary African design is inspiring the global design landscape. So why isn’t it accessible worldwide?
Born in Ghana, raised in South Africa, and now living in New York, their founder, Nana Quagraine always loved the unique contemporary African design items she found on trips home. But while African designers often inspire global design, she realized these designer’s creations were largely under-represented and hard to access globally.
Nana founded 54kibo along with a team of executives, investors, and advisors committed to sharing the vast creativity and talent the African diaspora has to offer the world.
Look at how lovely the Large Pale Blush Giving Bowl is pictured above. Can you see it in your entranceway, in your living room, bedroom and well really any room? This Giving Bowlshowcases a sunburst pattern known as the “hope” design, reminiscent of the Rwandan flag, which stands for the country’s hope for a new dawn and brighter future.
This blush straw bowl like the yellow one is made from the same all natural fibers by local weavers with organic dyes used to achieve the soft blush pink color. Not only could this basket be a centrepiece, hold items even fruit it could also be a wall hanging to showcase the craftsmanship.
