Welcome !

Situated off the Southeastern coast of Africa, the beautiful island of Madagascar offers visitors a wonderful array of crafts, which we would like to introduce to you.

We get all our products from the Antananarivo region. The local artisans that sell on the marketplace of that capital rich in colours still know ancient crafts. Rather than using intermediaries we work directly with them, which means that you get a fair price.

Twice a year we go and meet them and buy the products that we display in our warehouse in Excideuil, in the Dordogne-Perigord region. These include :

  • Baskets,
  • Bags,
  • Gems, stone animals, spheres, eggs,
  • Decorative objects made from various materials (used soda cans, wood, horn, stones, iron…),
  • Women’s hats, men’s hats,
  • Raffia fabric by the metre,
  • Embroidered tablecloths,
  • Raffia animals,
  • Vanilla (coming soon),
  • ’Smock’ dresses,
  • Raffia houses,
  • Raffia fabric place-mats.

All the colours and all the materials come together in an elaborate mix.
