about our story
All begins with a human story
Travelling has always been a part of who we are. Since many years, we have explored the world and all of his continents. But one day, our heart has stopped in Africa.
Hit by the strength of his inhabitants and the beauty of their crafting, we decided to make something for them or rather, with them.
During the last 15 years, we went several times per year in Mali and in Burkina Faso. We gradually come to know artists and sculptors whom we have been working reliably with and several of them become dear friends.
We have grown up together until the day we decided to be wholesalers and represent them to make their work known from the whole world.
From the unique gift to the exceptionnal piece
The lost-wax casting technique requires skills and knowledge of both pottery (to carve the wax and craft the molds) and metalworking (to prevent damage to either the clay mold or to the metal sculpture during the casting process). [learn more]
It's essential but not enough. We think that there is no point in having the best products if your are not able to have the best care. That's why we guarantee best prices and the highest quality of products and services.
We are devoted to propose bronzes that stood out for their quality, authenticity and originality. Items, we have personally chosen right on the spot, either in Mali or Burkina Faso.
Ethical as a statement
Our project is more than a simple business, our bronzes have a story with men behind and values we stand for:
- Fair prices for everybody. We think that an economy is sustainable only if all the actors find themselves there: the artists, you, us, your customers.
- Long-term partnerships and good working conditions. All craftmen have salaries to allow them a more stable life and commissions as elsewhere. It allow them and people they help, a more stable life.
- Design collaboration: we share ideas between the artist, you, your customers and us. Because everybody should have a voice.
- Trust and care. We want a world where Human is in the center and where technology is used to connect people and we fight for it.
