Afro Art was established in Stockholm 1967.
The Afro Art stores have over the years been a watering hole for anyone who has a passion for ethnic crafts. Today Afro Art AB is owned by six textile designers, all with a MFA degree.
Afro Art collaborates with local artisans to highlight the craftsmanship of the developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
A great deal of Afro Art’s catalog is developed by Afro Art Studio, Afro Art’s own design team. The idea is to use design as a tool, to develop and market traditional crafts and thereby help to create jobs in the regions where the craft is currently the main source of income. This give unique traditions of crafts a possibility to survive and Afro Arts clients get access to the world’s craftsmanship.
