With rapid urbanization and new cultural influences, some art and century-old skills in Africa are disappearing.
I CREATED MUNTU WITH ONE KEY GOAL: TO BRING THE FINEST BLEND OF AFRICAN ARTISTRY INTO THE LIMELIGHT.
Born and raised in Africa, I started grasping the culture and art scene very early. My papa used to be the head of one of the most influential Angolan history and culture museums, putting me in permanent contact with rare artifacts, exquisite art pieces, and extraordinary crafts.
I had the honor to witness the work of amazing artists and crafters and see the beauty of craftsmanship through their lenses. Consequently, I became aware of the uniqueness of a statement piece and the splendor of a sustainable artwork.
IT IS THE DESIRE AND THE NEED TO HIGHLIGHT THE WORK OF THESE GIFTED INDIVIDUALS WHILE SURVEYING THE RICHNESS OF UNIQUE CULTURES IN AFRICA IN WHICH MUNTU WAS CREATED. TODAY, WE CREATE, CURATE, AND PERSONALLY VET EVERY PRODUCT AROUND YOU AND YOUR NEEDS.
We excel at finding the sublime, and we work daily with local artisans, some of them from remote locations, to bring you the best Africa offers, so you don't have to do the work.
Don't see what you're looking for? Get in touch with us. Remember, we're all a work in progress, and we would like to hear from you.
EACH OF OUR PRODUCTS STRIVES FOR AUTHENTICITY, TELLS A STORY, BREATH OUR ROOTS AND, CELEBRATES OUR CULTURAL DIVERSITY.
Within African communities, everything has a deeper value, with each product representing symbolism and spiritual dimensions alongside decorative and aesthetic qualities.
Our Approach to creating and finding beautiful objects is always the one that supports the use of natural elements, available raw materials, old-fashioned techniques, traditional skills and respect for the planet.
Made with love, meant to be shared, I invite you to explore and experience our legacy.
