Announcement   Welcome to Chocolat Negro Recycled Design and Art

I come from beautiful and sunny South-Africa.
As a designer, artist and photographer I work mainly in the field of recycled Design and Art incorporating traditional African craftsmanship techniques into my designs.
I work in many media and I think you should not limit yourself to one thing if you have the desire to express yourself in other ways too.

I have worked as a product designer and developer for NGO's in several African countries in the crafts sector. I call it a blessing that I was able to meet so many different people and live in foreign countries.
I came into contact with a great variety of traditional craftsmanship techniques and was able to learn many of them. Chocolat Negro is a young life style and design label representing today's South Africa.

I am also the founder and publisher of the online magazine THE MDANTSANE WAY, a site profiling the second biggest township in South Africa that was created in 1962 under the Apartheid regime as a settlement area for cheap African labor coming from the rural areas, needed for industrial development in the region.(www.mdantsaneway.com)

I do ship internationally. Shipping from South-Africa to the USA and most overseas destination takes between 10 -21 days.
I am glad to do customer wholesale orders. Please convo me if you are interested in a specific product.

Please fell free to visit our website at

This bracelet is beautifully made and very unique. Unfortunately it is too big by about 2". I will wear it, but i just hope it doesn't fall off. Perhaps some day I will order another one, much smaller. n nMany thanks, n nLouise

About

We Give Things A Second Life

Chocolat Negro is a young design and fashion life-style label born in South-Africa in 2007. During the last four years we have grown at a fast pace and have developed a brand that is representative of the vibrating energy of 21st century South Africa. We are passionate about innovative design and work mainly in the field of recycled design and art.
We create what we call sustainable urban design.
To us, this means, design representing the local culture without being labeled ethnical, design that considers the community and design that evaluates the impact it has on our earth by re-working discarded materials and waste-items.

We re-use, re-cycle and re-work materials that can be incorporated in our designs. With our work and by following a path in sustainable Eco-design we aim to create and sustain work for talented men and women in South-Africa

Most of the products Chocolat Negro offers are completely hand-made and rooted in African crafts traditions originating from all over the continent. Our products represent the charm and the many voices of todays Africa. We love fabrics, we love beads, we love the colors and patterns that are part of the heritage of this continent.
Chocolat Negro Designs are provocative, revolutionary and sometimes satirical an expression of the multinational street culture of South-Africa.

Our products are created in our design studios in South-Africa and in Mali in West-Africa and we work directly with small craftsmen and women and young African entrepreneurs.

Thank you for your love and support throughout the last four years. Your growing interest in our brand inspires and motivates us each day to create more new and beautiful products.

Much Love
The Chocolat Negro Team
