Africa Day 2020

Terres d’Afrique is a company whose products are made in Africa, by Africans, and is driven by a profound philosophy that celebrates African traditions, cultures and diversity.

In celebration of Africa Day on May 25th, TDA will join with a community of creatives in fashion, beauty, travel and lifestyle to celebrate and honor the beauty of modern Africa, through the promotion of “This is The Face of Africa”. TTFOA will challenge one dimensional views of what Africa is, by showcasing diverse, colorful and dynamic images of people, style and locations that acknowledge the beautiful, engaging and modern “Face of Africa”.

Zandile Ntobela, a member of the Mpondo Xhosa, was born in 1986 in Bizana in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Recognized by the Smithsonian in Washington DC as an international artist, her art has been exhibited, either individually or as part of Ubuhle, in numerous museums, art galleries and private collections including:

Hlabisa Bench, by Thabisa Mjo

"To me, this process of making the bench demonstrates our ability to work together as a community toward accomplishing a task that will benefit everyone, showcases our creativity and incredible craftsmanship; and the resulting final product is the successful integration of diverse ideals coming together and working harmoniously to create a functional product, in this case that being a bench."

"Curiosity 5"

CERAMIC MATTERS and WIID DESIGN follow their own paths while collaborating regularly on furniture where the clean lines imagined by WIID DESIGNare decorated with the shimmering colors of CERAMIC MATTERS. But above all what brings them together is a search for a place where the lines between art, design and craft are blurred, something unique to the South African creative scene.
