Nkuku create beautifully handmade home and lifestyle products, collaborating with Artisans across the world to combine timeless design with traditional skills and natural materials. The name was borrowed from a hut in Zambia and their business plan jotted on the cover of a paperback.

Though the team and products may have grown, Nkuku have the same hands-on approach, meeting and working with all their makers personally, learning each product’s story. They created the incredible Artisan aprons that our barista team are wearing, as well as our gorgeous gold scissor hooks.
