OUR IMPACT

At Obakki, we believe in putting people first. Our main mission is to support and expand our artisan partnerships, and to fund development work through the Obakki Foundation.

We ensure that our artisans have access to basic needs and the opportunity to grow, thrive and provide for their own communities. Over half of our artisans receive support from the foundation in the form of clean water, education, livelihood initiatives etc. With over 30 years of proven results, and over 4 million people impacted, it truly is the beating heart of Obakki.

Artisan Made

Handcrafted in partnership with world-class artisans—real people making products that bring meaning and connection to your home. 

Small Batch

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.

Sustainable Partnerships

By travelling to each region and using only local materials, we establish sustainable relationships with our artisans.

WHAT DO WE BELIEVE

We believe in slow design. We’ve connected with artisan groups from around the globe to preserve and honour traditional artistry, 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.

HOW WE WORK WITH ARTISANS

We’re in touch on a regular basis and their quality of life—and ability to sustain themselves and their communities—will always be our top priority as a company. Their happiness, health, and financial independence all matter to us, which is why we operate differently.

We are loyal business partners helping to establish economic stability in the lives of our artisans. Through the Obakki Foundation, we provide extra support when needed - education, development, health and livelihood. Because being a supportive business partner is more than just a transaction, it's a direct connection to humans and a commitment to the communities they live in.
