Welcome to the world of SWANE-Design. Together with craftsmen and artists from Senegal SWANE-Design manifactures an unique kind of home furnitures and accessories. Traditional techniques combined with creative design and unusual materials generate products that are not only beautiful and functional, but also meaningful: All furnitures and accessories are made out of recycled materials. This typ of recycling is also known as upcycling.
Recycling/Upcycling-Design is getting increasingly popular, also beyond african borders. In Senegal it' is currently establishing itself as a mini-industry which allows young people from a poor Background to get some professional training.
We believe in the responsibility of companies to pay attention to decent and nature-friendly manufacturing conditions. Therefore, SWANE-Design stands for a successful business that contributes effectively to a social and environmental sustainability.
We pave the way for young entrepreneurs. In this sense we offer fair, above-average salaries to the artisans, and pay attention to health-friendly manufacturing conditions.
