Afroart

Afroart was established in Stockholm 1967.

The Afroart stores have over the years been a watering hole for anyone who has a passion for ethnic crafts. Today Afroart AB is owned by six textile designers, all with a MFA degree.

Afroart collaborates with local artisans to highlight the craftsmanship of the developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

A great deal of Afroarts catalog is developed by Afroart Studio, Afroarts own design team. The idea is to use design as a tool, to develop and market traditional crafts and thereby help to create jobs in the regions where the craft is currently the main source of income. This give unique traditions of crafts a possibility to survive and Afroarts clients get access to the world's craftsmanship.
