WELCOME TO OBAKKI
Obakki is a purpose-led lifestyle brand that connects customers to globally curated, ethically made home goods rooted in artisanal craft traditions. We believe in slow design and are committed to offering special and versatile products that are connected to a real story, giving a cultural and emotional connection to every purchase.
We’ve spent the last 25 years curating products and establishing relationships with artisan partners around the world. They are part of our global family, and we’re excited to now extend these beautiful items to you. Our brand and our artisans are very important to us—thank you for ensuring we are both represented properly.
THE OBAKKI DIFFERENCE
Our supply chain never involves factories—it is made up of individual artisans and communities preserving a traditional skill or craft. Some of our partners are very established while others fall under the support of our sister company, the Obakki Foundation. Regardless of where our creators call home, their skill and talent are worth celebrating and deserve to be recognized equally on a global platform—either on our website or in your beautiful store. Each handmade piece is the result of a careful production process, ensuring no damage has been done to the environment, individuals or communities who have made them—and we are confident that you can see and feel the difference.

HOW IT WORKS
This is not a typical wholesale program—we are a purpose-led company that invests our net profits back into expanding our artisan programs or into our development work with the Obakki Foundation. Due to this, our margins are different—we operate at a 30% markup in order to ensure the profit / benefit returns to the artisan.
Orders can be placed directly through our site. When you check out, you will use the code: WHOLESALE30 in order to purchase.
