dassie artisan

We launched Dassie in 2012 after finding a lack of unique, handmade, feel good homeware available on the market. Combining our collective career experience as well as inspiration and knowledge gained on our global travels, we created a brand based on honesty, integrity and simply great design that inspires others to live well.

Taking inspiration from the worlds of fashion, different cultures and our African roots, we are committed to offering our customers handmade treasures that are lovingly created by talented artisans. Each item is representative of the hard work and skills developed over generations; woven with ounces of culture and years of heritage.

We are proud of the platform we have created for the artisans that we support and so are committed to continuing to grow organically whilst remaining socially and environmentally responsible.

Our mission is to work directly with artisans in developing countries to produce unique, design-led homeware.

We seek to empower our artisans to use their traditional skills and techniques to reach a broader market and create better lives for themselves and their communities.

Our aim is to celebrate individuality and acknowledge our responsibility to inspire and educate our customers to make conscious and honest buying decisions.
