Ever felt like having a custom-made African artifact to decorate your home? Or maybe you had that one friend who is in love with African culture and wanted to get them a gift that is unique and that they would probably never expect and at the same time economically improving the lives of African artisans who have numerous daily challenges brought about by poverty, high cost of living and unemployment in Africa.
Well, Let me introduce you to Urban Change Lab GmbH. It is a German-based company that was created as a Fairtrade company that connects talented African craftsmen from Kenya, Ghana, and Nigeria to customers all over the world who want custom made African artifacts. The process is very transparent as the customer is in direct communication with the craftsman and at any point would call the craftsman to find out how their request is going.
Urban Change Lab then takes care of all the important details including, worldwide shipping, quality checks before items are shipped, logistics, payment and everything else to ensure that the customer gets the full value of their money. Get to know how it works in this 1-minute video.
