Meet The Designer
We are a wonderful fusion between a Nigerien craftsman and a Portuguese designer who have worked to bring together the traditional art of weaving (SAAKA) with modern design. The result is a unique visual product inspired by the lines and colors of Portuguese azulejos and reflected in Nigerien traditional Salaka. SAAKA is a sustainable waiving concept motivated by an ambitious reflexion to preserve a african ancestral art that tends to disappear and to keep it everlasting… All our piece of art is entirely handmade and unique. Contemporary, authentic and dynamic, our textiles promote the usefulness of traditional african weaving art, demonstrating the wide range of possibilities offered by this creative discipline, and its anchoring in our daily lives.
