We believe it's important to stand behind true artisans, embracing the beauty of slow design and artisanal production—as an advocate, champion, and consumer. We've built sustainable relationships with our artisan partners and their communities, allowing us to ethically trace each product from concept to completion.
We believe in slow design and we love the idea of limited edition, small-batch homewares that can be admired for a very long time.
We believe in knowing the origin of the products we buy, as well as the impact of our consumption—not only on the environment, but also on the communities and individuals that create them.
From homewares created in partnership with like-minded co-ops to goods sourced from global artisans who share our ethos, every Obakki product reflects our values of sustainability, traceability and ethical production.
Handcrafted in partnership with world-class artisans—real people making products that bring meaning and connection to your home.
While protecting traditional methods, each item is handcrafted in limited quantities to ensure its sustainability and uniqueness.
Transparent supply chain
We follow our supply chain from concept to completion to protect our environment and artisan partners.
By travelling to each region and using only local materials, we establish sustainable relationships with our artisans.
