We are Artisans In Africa
The AIA Goal
Our goal is to represent African artisans from far and wide. The artisans we represent and showcase in our SHOP are from rural to urban, cutting across gender, age, to socio-conomic status, language and cultural backgrounds, in order to aptly showcase Africa’s diversity. This way you have a true representation of African gifts, to shop from and a variety of African stories to experience.
Find popular artisanal forms in an African city with guidelines from product design and development team
Curate and partner with artisans working with that art form, paired with manufacturing partnerships
Enroll skilled artisan story onto AIA vendor system and catalogue products onto eCommerce site
The AIA Way
Artisans In Africa (AIA) serves to unite artisans operating on the African continent,
empowered by one central digital sales platform. We are seeking out the synergies that foster cooperation between established production lines and artisan products. This means supporting our artisans with market research to guide product development, technology, world class centralised product design and continental digital marketing through genuine, creative story telling, that gives established tourism, banking, retail and philanthropic partners, the transparency and reach they need to make their investment in the sector viable.
