I have been an artistic person since I was a child. Back then I had made up my mind that I was going to be an artist. However growing up in a developing country like Malawi, everyone told me that art wouldn’t earn me a living at all. So one day in high school, my design and technology teacher suggested that I try architecture, and I did. I still had an element of art right?
Fast forward years later, I have an architecture degree and a master’s degree, have worked for eight years in the field and still felt that child artist knocking and trying to come out. So I listened. I decided to go for it by opening this store because I’m happiest when I’m being creative :)
I have a vision that BhoFro Design will be a place to allow me to express my creativity and share my culture with you with beautiful items while playing my part in helping with the development of Malawi.
I try hard to source Malawian materials to support the local economy, but where I cannot, I make sure that the products are sourced from other African Fair Trade sources.
Thanks again! [Zikomo]
