Explore our Collection
In our Blackrock shop we bring the best of African arts and crafts, with something for everyone. We source our products from around 15 African countries, buying most of them from the people that make them. Come and visit us to see our full product range.
Baskets & Bags
We stock a wide range of genuine bolga baskets, hand woven by our women’s cooperative in northern Ghana. These really are baskets designed for life – you can expect them to serve you for decades. We also offer a wide range of other styles of handbags, shoulder bags, purses and wallets in a range of materials from different countries in Africa.
We source much of our stone from a youth cooperative in Kenya. We’re so amazed with the work of these young people – they carve a great range of animals, bowls, candle holders, dishes and some great unusual one-off items.
No home is complete without an olive wood bowl! They come in a range of sizes from tiny carved heart bowls to 14″ salad dishes. We also stock utensils, such as serving spoons, knives and forks, some with bone inlay.
Coffee & Chocolate
Our Fair Chain coffee and chocolate truly makes a difference to the people who make it. It is the only available product of its kind that is made wholly by African companies. And the taste is second to none. Coffee is Ethiopian, Rwandan and Ugandan and the chocolate comes from Mozambique.
We are proud of our wide range of natural African jewellery – earrings, necklaces, bracelets, anklets and rings in a wide range of materials including stone, silver, brass, bone, ceramics and much more.
Art & Sculptures
We stock a wide range of oil paintings, drawings and other carvings and sculptures. All of these are one-off works of art and therefore only available in our shop. We are always bringing in new stunningly unique items such as carved ebony cheetahs from Kenya and Namibian landscape drawings.
Clothing & Fabric
African style clothing is truly unique. We stock wrap skirts, designer dresses and shirts along with a super range of scarves and headwear.
