The modern accessories and furniture brand, West Elm, collaborates with South African artisans to produce a collection of beautiful pieces for the home. The project includes hand-woven coin baskets, sculpted wooden chairs, handmade pottery, and hand-screened silks pillow, to name a few.
I love the behind-the-scenes features of the collaborations on the West Elm website. We get to see the artists in their studios working along with a little write-up about their skills. We also get a glimpse at the beautiful country through video and photographs. See more here.
