Africonté is a contemporary Zambian homeware and lifestyle brand that upholds the skills of local artisanship and culture. Following an artisan-led aesthetic, Africonté works with women weavers and other skilled artisans in marginalised communities seeking to support and financially empower them.
Sustainability is another area Africonté focuses on. The brand is committed to using natural materials to craft its functional and decorative homeware and lifestyle collections. This includes Makenge baskets made from the Makenge root and are unique to Zambia, woven palm leaf gourds, lampshades, and placemats, as well as a selection of handcrafted terracotta pots in a wonderful earthy red hue.
