If you’re looking for a unique decorative item to add to your home or give as a gift- you should try looking at artisan items. Coming from variety of countries in Africa, artisan items give a tribal ancient feeling to any room they are placed in.
A lot of them posses spiritual qualities and have been known to protect one’s home, give peace and fertility and even good fortune. But even those who are not BELIEVERS know- they are simply beautiful and unique.
Decorative items can give a blank room a theme. Meaning- if you have a clean design- one artisan tribal item will give the room a total different look, and if you’re wondering where do people get these items from- I have just the place for you.
You can go to any travel agency and book tickets to Africa. The markets there will be filled with tribal and artisan items. However, if you’re looking for a simpler way to add some style to your home- you can try Etsy.
Etsy is a worldwide online marketplace that connects crafters and handmade lovers from all over the world, and one of the sellers there is from South Africa.
Faisal Vahed is the owner of an Etsy store called CulturalFusionAfrica, and he’ll have everything you’ll need to grant that unique look to your home- or surprise someone with a beautiful gift!
The biggest added bonus behind Etsy is that you could use the site to purchase a gift for someone that lives far from you- as you simply ask the seller to send your loved ones the present directly- instead of sending it to you.
