ART WITH HEART
Obakki’s collection of artisanal homewares and lifestyle products are much more than a beautiful artistic statement. The company sources ethically and sustainably made products from artisans from across the globe, providing livelihoods and support for local communities.
We’re struck by the woven art from the Mexican community of Querétaro. “Our artisan partners from Querétaro, Caralarga, are an incredibly talented co-op of female weavers who use traditional techniques to create stunning modern creations using raw cotton and fibre from the sansevieria plant,” says Obakki founder Treana Peake. “What we love most about this group is that they began with a mission to provide employment opportunities for women in their area of Mexico.” Obakki’s ever-changing collection includes textiles, pottery, homewares, jewellery, apparel and even skincare.
