Afrika Tiss is an enterprise based in Burkina Faso. Focusing on weaving with raw materials their aim is to revive the textile craft industry in the region, but they also coordinate jewellery and homeware training projects. We partnered with Afrika Tiss on their Design for Peace project. The initiative acts in the form of artist residencies, where designers, refugees and local craftsmen collaborate. The creative exchange takes place where all participants have the opportunity to try new designs, learn new skills and refresh ancient techniques.
