We are importers of fine African art, European and African antique collectible trade beads. We also carry a large selection of hand made Krobo beads.
We have been asked many times "what are Krobo beads." Krobo beads are produced in Ghana West Africa in a district called Krobo hence the name Krobo beads. The process begins with pulverized glass from old bottles, windshields, old glass beads and just about anything made of glass. Once the pulverized glass is produced it is poured into ceramic molds. Each mold contains pits that the pulverized glass is poured into. The next step is to place the mold with the glass into a clay oven where the glass will be melted and formed into beads.
By purchasing African made beads or art from us, you support the many artisans and their families to make a dignified honest living.
We have been complimented on our prices many times over. Our prices are low and that's how we keep them. Our mission is to bring high quality African art and beads at an affordable price to the general public. One of the ways that we do this is we source the thousands of artisans directly without dealing with any middle men. As a result of this practice we have developed a large client base worldwide.
We have constant new arrivals daily and are always updating the site with different products.
