AKOJO MARKET is an online marketplace championing ethical designers and brands from across Africa. They curate and sell beautiful handmade accessories, clothing, homeware, kitchenware, gifts and kids toys, supporting the artisans who make them and em-powering local designers. Co-founded Natasha Buchler, formerly a business risk consultant in Sub-Saharan Africa, and Annie Rudnick, former Head of Communications at art gallery Hauser & Wirth, AKOJO MARKET is the UK's leading platform for the discovery of talented, sustainability- minded creatives in Africa. AKOJO MARKET only works with brands that have met robust criteria for ethical and sustainable manufacturing and demonstrate transparency in their processes. These brands contribute to the development of society and growth of legitimate industry in a variety of ways - ensuring workers and artisans are well paid, not hiring forced, child or prison labour, refusing to cut corners, considering the environmental impact of manufacturing and use of certain materials, donating a portion of profits to local charities and more. The company has received the Eco-Age Brandmark Initiative. Originally feautured in #TheCollective 2nd Edition (2019)
