At Daakan, our mission is to promote handmade cultural traditions from Africa and provide economic support to the talented artisans. We work closely with our partner cooperatives to make sure everything is created ethically and sustainably and that artisans are paid fairly for their work.
I travel throughout Africa meeting with artisans, cooperatives, and natural creators to find the best products for you and your home. At Daakan you can find beautiful woven baskets and home decor, fabrics and textile creations, natural skincare and oils, and organic candles and diffuser scents.
All woven and textile items are handmade, and thus unique items. When you purchase an item, you will be contacted within 24 hours with information about the exact patterns available. I work to get new designs and colors in often, but the colors shown on the site may not be available.
