chocolatnegrodesign's Shop 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.(

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.
