What's Your Business?

African Art and Cultural Items. We offer an affordable selection of beautiful works by artisans from all regions in Africa. Please consider this site whenever you need to purchase a gift for any occassion. Many African Americans are aware of their connection to Africa. Even if you have not yet had the chance to trace your roots, you may identify with other successful African Americans. The Obama family have traced their roots to Eastern Africa. Oprah has traced her roots to West Africa. If you are inspired by the great Nelson Mandela, have a look at our South Africa section.

About Me:

I am a proud South African. I grew up in the rural areas of the Eastern Cape, experiencing life without running water, electricity or shoes on my feet. Even though life was hard, I grew up with a sense of pride and purpose. I learned great respect for my elders, the values of tradition and family bonds and that Ubuntu helps you find the right path through life. I was lucky however, to have an aunt recognize my potential who encouraged me to seek higher education, giving me a place to stay and access to schools. I had to work to fund my education myself. I managed to hold a job and help my aunt to care for a large family. I graduated from Nelson Mandela University as a Radiographer. I have since worked in South Africa, Ireland and California, USA. With respect to my new website: “Many African communities are already emerging through increases in economic activity from a variety of industries. We don’t hear enough about the successes in Africa. I would encourage people to embrace the spirit of Ubuntu and the beauty of Africa by proudly displaying these unique works of art, and simultaneously helping African communities.” Ubuntu: In an African cultural context ubuntu means, a person becomes an ancestor worthy of respect or veneration based on how they interact with humanity. The Art of Ubuntu pays a fair price for products in an effort to be a part of the economic solution for all African communities. Proudly display these culturally significant items in your home or office and embrace the notion of Ubuntu, benefiting yourself and our brothers and sisters in Africa.
