Obakki is a purpose-led lifestyle brand that connects people through modern design. Everything we curate is handcrafted and produced in partnership with our network of world-class artisans—real people making products that bring meaning and connection to your home.
At Obakki, our artisan partners are part of our extensive global family. 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. With every Obakki purchase, consumers are supporting meaningful income opportunities for artisans, their families, and their communities.
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.
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.

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.
