Here at Artisans & Adventurers, we love all things Autumn. From the changing leaves to the crisp chill in the air, there is something magical about the season.

It was introduced in 1998 by the World Kindness Movement and is celebrated in many countries across the world including Canada, Australia, Nigeria and Singapore.

Halloween | Sustainable Spooky Shop Window

Halloween | Sustainable Spooky Shop Window

October 30, 2020

Our newest team member, in-store Halloween expert and visual merchandiser Alfie has created a wickedly witchy Halloween window display for us to welcome in the spooky season. He focused on using natural materials and botanicals to make this window display as sustainable as possible. Alfie says "my main inspiration for the window display was the natural side of Halloween. That's why I used natural dyes and materials. There isn't the stereotypical witches and monsters and single use plastic items in the windows. I didn't want the window to be theatrical - instead it is raw and rich, using dried oranges and uncarved pumpkins. It's about celebrating the season, not about mass production. Like our products, I wanted the window to be one of a kind and hand-crafted."

New In | Kenyan Soapstone Collection

October 16, 2020

Soapstone is a beautifully tactile material with an appearance similar to that of marble, it is a metamorphic rock that is composed primarily of talc. Because it is composed primarily of talc it is usually very soft. Soapstone is typically grey, blue-ish, green, or brown in colour and is often variegated. Its name is derived from its "soapy" feel and softness. Because of its softness, soapstone is easy to carve into all different shapes and designs. It is also non-porous and heat-resistant, making it a great material for a wide range of uses. All of our contemporary soapstone products are hand carved in Nairobi by Tabaka Chigware Youths Self Help Group.
