With a global view catering for an aspirational market, the brand is young at heart and explores the treasures engraved within Africa and the world of modern culture and heritage to tell the unique stories of then, now and soon.

All this packaged in extremist yet minimalist structures, which take design and craftsmanship as the first and foremost motivation.
