ABOUT US

Tafika Arts is a bicontinental family-owned arts business rooted in Zambia, Zimbabwe, and the United States. The majority of our items come from the Victoria Falls region of Zimbabwe, where our family has been immersed in the local arts scene for many decades. 

 

We work directly with artisans & entrepreneurs on the ground to foster sustainable and mutually beneficial relationships; our partners are always paid at or above fair market value.

Tafika Arts offers an extensive collection of handcrafted works, including clothing and jewelry, wire crafts, wrought ironwork, hardwood carvings, stone sculptures, textiles, basketry, and so much more. We strive to curate a diverse selection that both showcases the range of artistic mediums in the region, and caters to a variety of tastes & budgets abroad. 

We believe the creative spirit has the power to transcend borders & cultures, and that art is a universal language which can break down barriers and foster understanding between individuals, communities, and nations. Passion is the driving force of Tafika Arts.

We love what we do, and we know you’ll love it too!
