2011-09-17 Love finding items made from natural sources, recycled materials or stuff others think has no second life.
It’s rare that you come across items that truly have a handmade feel or not much mass production has been used to make the items. I found this company while searching the internet and typing in random words. The name of the company is Nkuku after a village in Zambia. Most of the items have been inspired from Artisans in Africa and India.
I really love how they have taken natural elements with a vintage twist to make items such as the recycled sari as journals, old wood to make spice boxes and neat little chai tea glasses. I think any of the items would work well in a lovely old beach cottage. Ahh, sipping a little tea using the chai glasses, using the lovely spice boxes for a lovely meal and covering ourselves with a natural throw on a cool night at the beach.
