The landscapes of Madagascar are always a pleasure for the eye. Only by walking through them can one feel their full essence.

Life on the island is a real clash of colours, smells and noises.

Because we meet the artisans directly at their homes, we can observe their techniques and their crafts every time we come. From the sisal producer to the basket maker, from the market stall-owner to the polished stones worker, the natural stone retailer, the horn sculptor, the wood sculptor… the art of these men and women can only amaze us!
