A love tale
Later these two met in Bethel (the home to a number of Jehovah’s Witnesses volunteers engaging at their Nigerian Branch Office) and were drawn to each other by love, which was anchored by their common interests. They soon realized they shared a love for African art and Adire Worldwide was born a couple of years later with a mission to sell handcrafted, vibrant, African art that speaks of great mastery passed down several generations.
Daring to dream
Our dream is to give the world an opportunity to experience the rich, timeless African art and culture without having to travel to Africa. We do this by selling fondly hand-crafted, unique, African-inspired contemporary home décor and stylish fashion at a fair price. Our big selection of authentic African crafts is made by talented Nigerian artisans. Through this platform, we have been able to supply authentic, handmade African crafts to countries such as The US, The UK, The Netherlands, Italy, France, Switzerland and Germany to mention a few.
We are passionate about empowering African communities and work with a team of skilled artisans. We ensure they are fairly compensated and treated with the dignity and respect they deserve. We also care deeply about the environment which provides all the raw materials used in making our amazing range of products, we take personal responsibility to ensure that the materials are sustainably sourced in an eco-friendly manner and recycling is practiced where possible. By purchasing products advertised on Adire Worldwide Marketplace, you not only help to uplift the livelihoods of African communities and provide for their families by creating employment, you also play a role in strengthening the handcraft industry in Nigeria.
