ACHICA > Nkuku
The founders of Nkuku developed the idea for their company while taking a year out from working life, travelling mainly through Africa and India. They wanted to find a way to promote and develop the traditional skills of the artisans they met along the way, whilst building a sustainable business for themselves, and in the process, improving the challenging living standards and restricted opportunities that many artisans endured. The name ‘Nkuku’ was borrowed from a village in Zambia where they saw it whitewashed on a hut, and the business plan was jotted down in the back of a paperback. Nkuku is socially responsible and built on the principles of Fair Trade and equal opportunity. Its homewares showcase this to perfection, each one adding a little ethical culture to your home.
