Location of artisan makers: Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Rwanda & Malawi
QÄSA QÄSA stems from the Amharic (Ethiopian) word to mean inspire | awake | motivate. Taking inspiration from their heritage, Naeema and Aniqah founded QÄSA QÄSA in 2015 and set off on a journey to explore the incredibly diverse skills of artisans in Eastern Africa. They have partnered with exceptional artisans, non-governmental organisations (NGO’s) and community groups in Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Malawi to design and source unique products that combine traditional skills with modern design. All of their pieces are meticulously handcrafted using local and indigenous materials and take into account sustainability and ethical production.
