Mesmerizing Senegalese Limoges Black Owned Dinnerware
FATYLY LIMOGES DINNERWARE
Limoges dinnerware designer, Faty Ly discovered her passion for ceramics while living in Bobo Dioulasso, Burkina Faso, in the late ‘90s which sparked her to create her luxury black owned dinnerware brand, Fatyly. Intrigued by the lifestyle of Senegalese women from past generations and inspired by her surroundings growing up in West Africa, she was eager to share her culture with the world through her collections.
Working to preserve African culture, the brand seeks to create a collective memory to ground generations in African history and experience. Each design in the black owned dinnerware collections are drawn by Faty in her studio in Dakar. Her exquisite vector drawings are then transformed into silk decals that merge onto the limoges dinnerware porcelain material when heated to a certain temperature.
The upscale black owned dinnerware company brings contemporary African design objects to life, connecting people and enhancing the experience of eating and entertaining at home. As a child, Faty was surrounded by relatives who loved art, including her mother who was an artist. She graduated from Central Saint Martins of London and currently lives and works in Dakar, Senegal where she designs the ceramics that are a part of her black owned dinnerware collections.
