What do we mean by ‘African Twist?’

AuraDecor Designs strives to offer their customers products with an interesting fusion; By taking an everyday home decor item and giving it an African twist we believe that the result is quirky, fun and a little out of the ordinary.

Take our popular wirecraft range for instance – here we have used an iconic rural idyll in the shape of the humble chicken and given it an African hand beaded twist. Likewise the beaded Christmas decorations……..Christmas Puddings, Striped Candy Canes and cute Ginger Bread men all covered in beads and ready to add a vibrant ethnic touch to your traditional Christmas tree this year.

Drawing from our South African roots we source ideas and products that will appeal to the English market yet retain the innovation and uniqueness that is so evident in South Africa. All of our South African products are from partners who adhere to the tenants of fair trade.
