About Us

Our online venture captures our passion for treasure hunting and showcasing the beauty of traditional crafts techniques with conscious contemporary living in mind.

Tribeur [traieb-uh] was founded in 2020 to highlight how African craft, design and art can play an important role in our modern world. Our team is passionate about creating beautiful and ethical objects and design furniture made by craftspeople in Africa. Using digital e-commerce technology to showcase contemporary craft and design, our goal is to make these objects accessible to everyone and demonstrate that they have a place in any interiors. Through our curated selection of home accessories and furniture made using sustainable materials, we are serious about supporting artisan entrepreneurship from places like Cameroon, Senegal, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Ivory Coast and beyond.

As well as stocking a variety of well-crafted contemporary objects and finds, we work collaboratively with our network of artisans entrepreneurs, designers and brands to develop our brand collections. Our collection refocuses on crafts that evoke notions of quality and authenticity whilst empowering local communities to bring positive social impact.

Our Mission

Our mission is to make artisanal goods made by skilled craftspeople on the African continent accessible to the rest of the world. We do more than retail; Tribeur is on a mission to build a trusted community, committed to greater visibility and engagement across supply chains.

Beyond the aggregate economic impact, artisan products reflect the cultural and social traditions of the communities within which they were created. Choosing artisan means supporting a form of economic development that has deep meaning, one that originates from and is rooted in the uniqueness of people and place.

Our Philosophy

Handmade, artisanal, design, local, contemporary: these are just some of the words that describe the brand philosophy of TRIBEUR.

Design and craftsmanship evolve as we do. That’s why we invest time in researching local crafts across Africa, artisan brands and help skilled artisans to develop unique products that compete in the global market. Working together to get things done right, we collaborate with makers to create beautiful products in a meaningful way with a focus on quality, craftsmanship, design, sustainability, culture and people. By opting on small batches, sustainable materials, fair wages and one of a kind products, we have an opportunity to rethink how we want trade to change in the future.
