World Design is a social enterprise that supports trade with Africa, working with job creation projects in the Craft sector around the continent to bring their handmade products to you.
Now specialising in jewellery and accessories, the range includes jewellery from a Masai women’s co-operative, ostrich eggshell, paper, telephone wire, Zulu beadwork and finely woven sisal set in sterling silver. Merino felt scarves, bags from African fabric and woven baskets are some of the wonderful accessories on offer.
When working with the projects, it became evident that their greatest need was for market access for their products. World Design draws on over 30 years of working in the craft sectors in Africa and South America to bring the finest selection to Ireland.
The World Design retail concept showcasing African craft and design began in Botswana in 1998 and a store was opened in Powerscourt, Dublin in 2006. Always working with sustainability and Fair Trade at the forefront of their business ethics, World Design has a long term working relationship with the women producers.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
