Give Your Home A MitiMeth Makeover

Early this year, I visited an Ibibio family home and was completely blown away by their home decor.  They had really cool wicker furniture, which gave their living room a certain traditional essence.

After my visit, I kept wishing I could get some hand crafted furniture for my home too. Then a friend told me I can get some in the local markets.

Sincerely, I was utterly disappointed when I visited Eko Market. I did find the handcrafted home decoration items like baskets, little flower stand and whatnots but, the finishing was not good at all and I just wanted more creativity.

I got busy with other things and totally forgot about my desire for a home make-over by using handicraft till about a month ago.

Since am more of an online shopper, I got Googling and voila! I found MitiMeth listed as one of Bellafricana’s verified merchants (this was before I joined Bellafricana). Man!! I was ecstatic.

The finishing was perfect and you could see that a lot of creativity has been put into it. Another part that I really liked is how durable this products look. Brings to mind what we said about craftsmanship in one of our previous posts.

Not everything needs to be thrown away. There are actually a lot of great things that can be done with things tagged ‘waste’.
