Designer, Garth Williams starting working in Zimbabwe in 1991 with a small group of highly skilled artisans. An Afro-centric range using recycled metal, wood and rapoka stone was developed and later that year Afrika Trading was established.
By combining different metals with different finishes and paying close attention to detail his designs became well known and sort after.
Gradually the ranges grew and during the subsequent 10 year period, he significantly shaped the art scene in Zimbabwe by improving techniques and introducing new concepts, especially with recycled metals.
This has resulted in a constant flow of fresh new ranges, many of which are regularly featured in glossy Home, Garden and Lifestyle magazines within the UK.
