I was wrong.
Early this year, I visited an Ibibio family home and was completely blown away by their home décor. 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.

It is not an hidden fact that I am always on the campaign for exportation of quality made in Nigeria products. This is one of the drive behind Bellafricana. We aim to bridge the gap between the producers and the local & global market.
