Handcrafted in Africa

When you choose Africanologie, you're choosing authenticity. Our handcrafted pieces are not just items; they are stories, traditions, and the heart of Africa brought to life in your home. 

The art of handcrafting often involves time-honoured techniques using primitive tools, passed down through generations of skilled artisans. These methods infuse each creation with a unique character and play a vital role in preserving valuable craft traditions that might otherwise be eroded by the ever-encroaching tide of industrialisation. By supporting these artisans, you actively contribute to the safeguarding of these age-old techniques, ensuring that the rich tapestry of African craftsmanship continues to thrive, enduring for generations to come.

Beautiful shop with a wonderful selection of things. Service was truly amazing from Suzie. I needed a last minute gift. Suzie organised it all and it was delivered later that evening wrapped. Truly appreciated her hep
