Here are our favourite products that double up for your summer home and garden.

It’s amazing what a new summer African cushion cover can do to reinvigorate a room for summer. Our Salem African cushions are available in a variety of bright colours, all hand woven in Ethiopia. Beautifully made, these cushions would work brilliantly as a sofa accessory or in a summer house.
A splash of colour is a surefire way of updating your home or garden with a fresh summer design. The Zulu Wire Basket is the best contender for this role, in an eye-catching rainbow swirl pattern. It would be great inside as a fruit bowl or outside as a patio table centrepiece. Truly a statement piece, our Zulu baskets are hand woven in South Africa. Our artisans use recycled telephone wire and beads to create a unique design for each item. This African basket does good whilst looking amazing.

Of course, you’re going to need a bottle holder for real sophisticated summer dining. Our Salsa Bottle Holder, handmade in Ethiopia, is the perfect fit. In brown this African design would complement the Salsa Tray perfectly, or you could try it in white to emulate white sands and summer relaxation.
