Ethical Homewares and Gifts for Sustainable Living
QÄSA QÄSA stems from the Amharic (Ethiopian) word to mean inspire, awake, motivate. Taking inspiration from our heritage, we founded QÄSA QÄSA in 2015 and set off on a journey to explore the incredibly diverse skills of artisans in Eastern Africa.
We have partnered with exceptional artisans, non-governmental organisations, and community groups in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Malawi to design and source unique products that combine traditional skills with modern design.
“All of our pieces are meticulously handcrafted using local and indigenous materials and take into account sustainability and ethical production.”
Handcrafted in East Africa
Our collection ranges from utensils and serve-ware made from wood and horn, as well as textiles that utilise the best of African cotton and eri silk.
Each of our items is either designed or hand-picked by us, for you and your home and we reveal the inspiring stories behind every product and its maker. Our pieces celebrate the creativity of each region and showcase the new and contemporary edge to current African design.
