Ani Artisanal is a handcrafted lifestyle brand
Ani Artisanal was created in 2017 by Rhoda Obineche, an Igbo-Canadian Artist with a passion to create and promote handmade, sustainable goods for natural living.
Ani is a passion project that allows me to remain connected to my roots while sharing African creativity & craftsmanship with the world.
The name Ani originates from the Igbo people in Nigeria and is the female Alusi (deity) of the earth, fertility, and creativity in Odinani. She is the most important Alusi in the Igbo pantheon.
Our designs are inspired by nature, combining natural elephant grass, earth tones & African weaving techniques to create functional woven art. We believe our baskets add a touch of minimalism and simplicity to any home, and will last for generations!
Our brand focuses on designing and creating quality lifestyle products that are specially handcrafted by skilled artisan weavers in Bolgatanga, Ghana.
Our mission is to create sophisticated, unique, handmade lifestyle and baby goods, for people who wish to live an intentional natural lifestyle while financially & creatively supporting artisans in Ghana.
