HOME DECOR GIFTING IDEAS: FURNITURE & LIGHTING
"The Ndebele Woven Green Pendant Light has been on my wishlist since I first discovered it and 54kibo about a year ago. I’ve never seen anything like it before, all the elements work so perfectly together and I can imagine it being a conversation starter installed in our dining room." - Lisa Hunt
"I love the woven pendant lights. They are contemporary, feminine-looking, and authentic at the same time. I love the fact that they’re handmade so a lot of love and craftsmanship was put into them. I already purchased 2 for some of my design projects!" - Marie Burgos
"I also love the woven necklace pendant lighting, milo armchair, and the djembe tables, .... you can see the tradition and craftsmanship. I recommend exploring every page on the site! " - Dana Baugh
HOME DECOR GIFTING IDEAS: DECOR ACCENTS
"The Black Cascade kilim rug, it was the first cotton design we produced and had those thick yellow tassels that gave it richness and a truly unique look...The sisal baskets! Whenever I see them, I relate to Africa, which is the main reason we joined 54kibo. We felt that the mission to combine the rich African origin crafts in one place is an amazing idea to get the different vibes of Africa and the diversity of its people." - Ibrahim Shams
"I'm obviously very biased toward the swaddles, but I love the Ottomans and the Mutapo Ceramic Platters." - Njoki Gitahi
"Ceramic textile artist Malene Barnett is another “fan of handmade textiles,” and pointed us to this throw with a contrasting geometric pattern that is hand-spun and loomed by local artisans in Ethiopia. Aside from loving it’s made-by-hand nature, Barnett appreciates that the blanket is “lightweight and has a minimalist design." - NYMAG The Strategist's 27 Best Throw Blankets According to Interior Designers
