Handcrafted Homewares

If you are a regular reader of the blog you will probably know I was born and grew up in South Africa and I will always have a soft spot for African inspired interiors as well as hand crafted goods so I am very excited about the Unique Crafted homewares coming to HomeSense from the 13th July. What is even better is the range is part of an initiative to help some of the most disadvantaged families increase their incomes so they can afford to send their children to school, in fact income received from selling two baskets could pay for a child to attend school for a term.

The range will be available in both HomeSense and TKMaxx and consists of Drums made of Cowhide from Ngeye Traditional Craft group in Uganda, traditional woven baskets and ground coffee which also comes in a variety of flavours. I have my eye on the colourful and creative baskets which I think would make a great addition to our living room space and bringing in some much needed colour.

Both John and I have a passion for interiors as well as travel and to be able to combine cultures and a good cause is a win win all-round as well as a great way to bring a bit of Africa into our home.


  1. What a great cause I'm in love with the salad serving set, we don't have a home sense near us but I keep hearing good things.

  2. I love the salad serving set as well. Great post.

  3. It looks like another fantastic range from Homesense. I do tend to spend far too much money when I do get to our local one!

  4. I'm a huge fan of SA and was lucky to spend time there myself when I was younger. I love the SA vibe and what a great cause
