WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE HOME DECOR?

54kibo’s designers are deeply connected to their design heritage. Part of that pride is shown in their commitment to sustainable home decor and ethical production. For many, this means working with local artisans from their local community to create handmade products. For others, this means weaving sustainable and local materials into their designs. With more consumers looking to source ethically-made and sustainable home decor products, these designers provide quality products that shoppers can connect with on many levels. They are not only beautiful, but also created with minimal impact on the earth and society.

UPCYCLED MATERIALS

Ghanaian furniture design house Tekura upcycles wood offcuts sourced from reforested wood in Ghana to manufacture their sleek sustainable home decor side tables and benches. Kenyan jewelry designer Adele Dejak uses recycled metals to make her bold handmade jewelry. The recycled brass is shaped into sculptural pieces that stand out but are still minimal in their sleek design.

 

LOCALLY SOURCED AND NON-TOXIC MATERIALS

Sustainable home decor items that are create from locally source materials include Kiliim’s rug collection, Dounia Home lighting as well as AAKS raffia handbags. 54kibo’s Ethiopian textiles are also exclusively made from locally sourced cotton fibers. The throw blankets and napkins and tea towels make thoughtful housewarming gifts and reusable napkins help to make a more sustainable table setting. Their timeless designs will grow with you, becoming a staple in your home for years to come. South Africa based Little Pine Tree makes adorable children’s toys that are safe and non-toxic. Founder Goeun Bae sought to give agency to local women by engaging them in a new craft and teaching them marketable skills. The collection of soft, hand-crocheted dolls are a perfect companion for little ones, suitable for babies and small children alike.
