AMSTERDAM NEXT | CITY GUIDE

Options goes Africa {Today in Amsterdam}


What I like a lot about Options! Amsterdam is the great variety of themes they run in their concept store. From May 3 till May 24 it's all African Options!

With support from Aid to Artisans, an international non-profit organization that uses craft to spur economic development, Feeling Africa was started in 2003 by Willard Musarurwa, a gifted crafter from Zimbabwe.

Based in Cape Town, Feeling African now employs six full time wire- workers and produces funky and colourful wire furniture that has been nationally acclaimed and featured in national and international lifestyle magazines such as Elle D├ęcor.



The products are entirely crafted by hand by the team of local artisans, and galvanised prior to being powder-coated, making them durable, weather-resistant and 100% original!
Furniture ranges from side tables, coffee tables, stools and (fruit)bowls. Feeling African also creates custom made pieces.
