OUR STORY

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.

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.

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.

MEET OUR FOUNDER

Treana Peake’s passion for travel and eye for design, combined with her lifelong dedication to making a difference in the world, inspired her to launch Obakki in 2005. The Obakki Foundation, its philanthropic counterpart, followed shortly thereafter.

For decades she has travelled the globe, always on the lookout for opportunities to wander off the beaten path to connect with people and their stories.

OUR ARTISAN PARTNERS

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.

By respecting the creativity and technique of every artisan, Obakki helps to give communities a stronger sense of cultural independence and pride, and we think that’s important. The way we operate is slightly different from most modern businesses, and we like it that way because it means we can honestly trace each product from concept to completion.
