About
Driven by a deep passion for Africa, its people and its ways, Ashanti is a contemporary celebration of traditional craft. From how we source our materials, to the way our products are made and who makes them, our business proudly represents the resourcefulness, vibrance and outlook of this colourful continent. Our signature Ashanti fabric is hand-woven from the fibres of perfectly good fabric that would otherwise be sent to landfill. We work with incredible craftsmen living out in rural villages. The tools and techniques they use have been passed down through many generations. It’s a truly amazing way of life that humbles and inspires us. Because all our products are lovingly handmade to the highest quality standards, every single item is original. No two are quite the same – yours is the only one! As an owner of an Ashanti design, you too become woven into a community where your choice of style is kind and conscious. Welcome! It’s beautifully bright in here.

If you are looking for non standard African designs you need look no further than Ashanti. Everything from handbags, shoulder bags, pouffe’s and belts, which are all made in Madagascar. Makes a change from all the “tack” that you get in the every day markets! Definitely to be recommended.

I was there last week, and I was just ignored. I went round the place looked at beautiful items but the several men in the store either did not think I had the money to buy anything or whatever they thought but I was the only customer and after about 5 minutes, I went on my way. Not a word from any of them. Say goodbye to return customer.

Cute store along Kloof that sells African made items from stools, cushions to little pouches. Great place for a souvenir back home, a must visit!

This is a wonderful shop; it’s eye-catching, colourful and welcoming. The products are beautiful, but the story behind the products is what’s really inspiring. The staff in the shop took the time to explain to us how everything is made by hand and ethically produced by communities in Africa. Materials are up-cycled to make unique products. I wish I could buy everything in this shop!

Kloof Street has a range of shops that reflect the design and craft culture in Cape Town, ranging from punk clothing to jewelry, furniture, and junk shops. I came across Ashanti on my most recent visit and was enchanted. They're taking traditional African cloth from West Africa and other locations and transforming them into great household items and accessories. I was delighted to be able to get a great tablet case, but was sorely tempted to go wild on the bags, rugs, and other items. You can have a great time wandering the two levels. Dady, the sales manager, was extremely helpful. I'll certainly go back, and recommend it highly. It's much better than going to GreenMarket square to look at the mass produced African curios.

Ashanti products can be seen in magazines and in fine stores...but a trip to this store is definitely worth it! We got some great bargains and got to meet the designers and the owner as an extra treat. Most fun though were meeting some of the women who help to great these stunning products. Ashanti was accommodating and shipped a container home to Chicago for us...and all arrived safely! If you like colorful things - GO HERE AND SEE!
