Our company has been big fans of KAZI for years. It's the go-to spot for beautifully handcrafted African wall plates, vases, etc. These artisans craft the most intricate and beautiful decor pieces using sustainable materials, all within fair-trade and ethical work environments. What's even more incredible is you can get the chance to meet each artisan on the KAZI website. Throughout the design and creation process, we were able to virtually meet the artisans hand-weaving our collection.
The KAZI x PILLOWPIA collection is inspired by handmade Turkish kilim rugs, known for geometric prints and color play. The natural dyes meet and transfer from one to the next across the geometric patterns in an unexpected way. The artisans weave together sweetgrass and raffia using a sewing needle to achieve these incredible woven pieces of art.
98% of KAZI's artisans are women in rural African communities. These women are farmers, workers, caregivers, mothers, widows, wives, daughters, and they are the backbone of these communities. By providing employment opportunities in areas where women are not traditionally the breadwinners, they work towards changing the narrative and closing the gender gap on a global scale. We are forever grateful to be given an opportunity to help empower these women, bring them opportunities, and have a part in alleviating poverty within these communities.
