BRAND MANTRA / PHILOSOPHY: At African Trading Port we have attempted to bring ‘Africa under one roof.’ since 1978. STORE /BOUTIQUE DETAILS: African Trading Port is housed in the V & A Waterfront’s Old Port Captain’s Building, a beautifully preserved, historical, three-story landmark from 1904. Featuring an immense array of artwork and objects d’art from practically each African country and culture, our gallery includes sculpture, artifacts, textiles, bronze ware, jewelry and more. Our unique collection is made possible by our art-scouts who travel specific regions of Africa, going deep into the rural areas and working directly with local communities. Great emphasis is placed on the originality of the goods we source and fair practices in terms of prices paid and regional laws. Our contemporary art collection focuses on the work of recognized artists however we also showcase younger, emerging artists from the African continent.
