Welcome to Out of Africa Gifts!
Based in West Yorkshire and founded in 2008, the concept behind our company is to bring a ‘Taste of Africa’ to the British and European markets. Our range of high quality giftware is principally sourced from craft cooperatives and individual designers in Kenya, East Africa but we are increasingly introducing exciting new products from South Africa and some of the West African countries. We go to great lengths with our suppliers to ensure our goods are always ethically sourced.
In 2019 we are expanding our ‘Out of Africa’ designer jewellery range, using antique trade beads (Venetian millefiori), batik bone and Ethiopian silver beads – each unique piece is handmade; some pieces are from well known Kenyan jewellery designers and others are designed and made in-house – we can also make items to order. In addition to this we stock some of the ever popular designs from ‘Jumali Silver’ and ‘Creative Copper’ jewellery in South Africa.
We also have exciting new stock from Annabelle Thom in Kenya and also Linda Camm designs – stunning, high quality bags, belts and accessories – as worn by HRH the Duchess of Cambridge!
The giftware for sale on our website falls into three main categories:
