of­ten, the best part of a jour­ney is ar­riv­ing home – that small part of the world you’ve made your own. And the items we choose to fill our homes with con­nect us to the wider world, weav­ing a story about who we are, where we’ve trav­elled and what we stand for. Nkuku (Nuh-ku-ku) con­nects cus­tomers with crafts­peo­ple like Har­lal, a leather crafts­man from Ra­jasthan, and Puru, a potter from Tamil Nadu, en­sur­ing each hand­made piece – from arm­chairs to table­ware – is made sus­tain­ably, us­ing meth­ods that don’t harm our planet.

It may span con­ti­nents but Nkuku’s home can be found in the rolling hills of the Devon coun­try­side - a heart­land for tra­di­tional craft. Whether items are made in far-flung locations or just down the road, each piece is de­signed and crafted with a com­mit­ment to trad­ing fairly. From lo­cally made fur­ni­ture to hand­made jour­nals from Ra­jasthan, each in­di­vid­ual piece is crafted us­ing tra­di­tional meth­ods spe­cific to the re­gion in which they were cre­ated. Dis­cover the full col­lec­tion on­line at Nkuku.com.
