Brand Spotlight: Nkuku Homeware

Autumn is here, and soon we’ll all start retreating into our homes as the days get shorter and colder. Now is the perfect time to add finishing touches to your home decor in time for those cosy autumn nights spent in the comfort of your home.

Nkuku is one of the brands we work with closely and we absolutely love their products. This brand creates fairtrade, eco-friendly, rustic homeware, sourced from skilled artisans living in Africa and India. Alistair and Alex Cooke, the founders of Nkuku, met these artisans during a year spent travelling. The Cookes founded the brand because they were inspired by the artisans’ creations and wanted to give them and their communities working opportunities and improved living conditions.

Our new in Nkuku homeware range is landing soon and we can’t wait to expand this beautiful, carefully selected collection. We’d like to share some of our favourite Nkuku picks with you.

The Oni Glass Box is a simple, understated home accessory that shows off your possessions in a neat and tidy way, rather than hiding them away.

The Antique Brass Yangeli Lantern is one of our favourites from the Nkuku range. It’s simple but surprisingly elegant. This is a miniature work of art suitable for any room within your home.

The glass-work of these Antique Brass Etched Glass Pots is special because it distorts the appearance of colour in a stunning way.

The Hyacinth Bulb Vases keep the signature rustic Nkuku look but add a delicate splash of colour to the room.

These Antique Lanterns make the perfect addition to a windowsill or a mantelpiece, and are perfect for lighting up a dark autumn night.

Nkuku Frames are the most popular and well-known items from the brand. We love the see-through Kiko Glass Frames for displaying your favourite prints or mementos.

All of the items we’ve shown you so far can be found on our Nkuku page. However, we are also going to show you some items we don’t have… yet. We’re going to give you a sneak peek at the new in range that is about to land on The Hut.

We are eagerly anticipating the arrival of the unique, hand-crafted Amba and Luwa candlesticks which will make the perfect centerpiece for any table. They add a touch of timeless class and sophistication.

The Hut’s Nkuku range is expanding from home decor and accessories. We are branching out into Nkuku wooden homeware utensils. We will be stocking these Artisan and French Bowls, chopping boards, serving trays and lots more to add a functional, rustic touch to your kitchen this season.
