Any avid trav­eller knows the joy of dis­cov­er­ing an ar­ti­san piece – and the heart­break of not be­ing able to bring it home. Step for­ward Nkuku, the life­style brand founded by two ar­dent glo­be­trot­ters, work­ing with mak­ers in Asia in or­der to bring stun­ning pieces to an au­di­ence back home.

Nkuku was founded on the be­lief that eth­i­cal business is good business, an ethos that is ev­i­dent in its con­stantly evolv­ing col­lec­tions rang­ing from table­ware and light­ing to fur­ni­ture and ac­ces­sories, all of which are cre­ated au­then­ti­cally us­ing tra­di­tional meth­ods and ma­te­ri­als. Trans­parency is key to cre­at­ing col­lec­tions where each item, whether made from mango wood, jute or re­cy­cled glass, has in­her­ent char­ac­ter and tells its own story.

If in Devon, pop into the Nkuku Life­style Store and Café to see for your­self. Lo­cated in a re­stored barn, this rus­tic space is filled with re­claimed ma­te­ri­als and makes the per­fect back­drop for Nkuku’s cu­rated se­lec­tion of In­dian an­tiques and re­stored fur­ni­ture. Sim­ply count the num­ber of spots on an Indigo Drop mug or run a hand across the smooth or­ganic shape of hand­blown glass­ware and you can feel the love that’s gone into cre­at­ing each piece. Nkuku’s new au­tumn/win­ter col­lec­tion is strong on strik­ing fur­ni­ture, tex­tured soft fur­nish­ings and eye-catch­ing table­ware. Plus, there’s a stun­ning Christ­mas line of dec­o­ra­tions and gifts on its way, so watch this space…

Whether you’re look­ing for a spe­cial present or a state­ment piece to bring fo­cus to your home, Nkuku has just what you need.
