Afroart was established in Stockholm 1967.
The Afroart stores have over the years been a watering hole for anyone who has a passion for ethnic crafts. Today Afroart AB is owned by six textile designers, all with a MFA degree.
Afroart collaborates with local artisans to highlight the craftsmanship of the developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
AfroArt engages its own design team in Sweden. The idea is to use design as a tool, to develop and market traditional crafts and thereby help to create jobs in the regions where the craft is currently the main source of income.
Afroart imports directly from artisans or through Fair Trade organizations.
Designer Team: Katarina Chintoh, Maja Ekmark, Bodil Karlsson, Emma Labor, Gunilla Lundberg and Marie Persson.
