Once I dreamed of Africa, the sounds of distant drumming echoing in my heartbeat, Her wild and ancient beauty reflecting in the memory of a sunset…

Welcome to our world of African crafts and beadwork.

African tribes are well known for their beautiful beadwork. Traditionally, beads have been used throughout Africa as a means of communication, a symbolic language that expresses status, culture, tribal affinity, and religious belief.

African Portraits brings you an exciting range of products, uniquely designed and branded, to help increase your profit margins. Each bracelet is more than just a simple item of ethnic jewellery, since each one has its own specific meaning – African tradition, spiritual healing, love and friendship, or identification with a specific cause.

Our range of individually handcrafted bracelets is designed and made by various outreach community programmes that support under-privileged women and those who are infected and affected by HIV and Aids. Today beads can therefore be used to express support for and belief in the future of our nation, and the unity of our wonderfully diverse cultures.
