Local Design: Arkivio

WORDS Mary Garner

Durban-based brand Arkivio, established in 2014, creates a stylish range of hand-made homeware and lighting designs.

Each piece available as part of the brand’s ranges is made in its home-base studio in Durban with the use of artisanal techniques combined with new technologies.

Its collections are made by hand in small batches, helping to keep the designs more exclusive. Arkivio believes in manufacturing its products locally and sourcing staff from the surrounding community, upskilling each member in the refined techniques required to produce high quality decor, lighting and mirror designs.

We especially love the colourful fans Arkivio will be releasing just in time for summer, seen below.
