Sigibhu was started out of love for contemporary, timeless African home accessories that have not had much recognition on the global market. All the products in our shop are made by women who have had this craft passed down from older generations and has been the livelihood of their communities. Through working with them, we ensure that not only are we bringing beautiful, sometimes one of a kind pieces to your homes but w e are also helping a grandmother, mother, sister, take care of her family and send their children to school. Most of the women we work with are proud and do not want handouts but want to be able to stand proud and work for their families. I also come from such a background and I understand their need for the world to see beyond their everyday struggle and just appreciate good craftmanship and this is what Sigibhu is here to do.
