Afroart was established in Stockholm 1967. 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. A great deal of Afroarts catalog is developed by Afroart Studio, Afroarts own design team. 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. This gives unique traditions of crafts a possibility to survive and Afroarts clients get access to the world's craftsmanship. Fair trade is a matter of course for them!
