about
Mwanzo

At Mwanzo Lifestyle we find our inspiration from the authentic, soulful experiences of life, often encountered on the less travelled roads.

Colours, textures, patterns, natural materials and age old, traditional techniques of craftsmanship are our muse when we search and select uniquely crafted furniture, decor and lifestyle products.

We deeply appreciate the character of each item crafted from natural materials and using ancient crafting skills.

All of our rattan, teak and grass products are ethically sourced from local communities in India, Indonesia and Africa.

We are committed to supporting artisans and the traditional craftsmanship used to create each unique item and we always endeavour to support these communities directly.

OUR MISSION – Mwanzo Lifestyle is dedicated to the pursuit of discovering unique, handcrafted decor and furniture pieces to enrich people’s lives.

OUR VISION – To source all pieces from sustainable materials and practices in direct support of the local communities from where the items originate.

Giving
Back

For each product you buy we will contribute one tree to the Eden Reforestation Project. The Eden Reforestation Project is a non-profit whose mission is to provide fair wage employment to impoverished villagers as agents of global forest restoration. Eden hires the poorest of the poor to grow, plant, and guard to maturity native species forest on a massive scale. Their “employ to plant methodology” results in a multiplication of positive socio-economic and environment measures.

By the year 2025 Eden’s objective is to plant a minimum of 500 million trees each year and to offer hope through the employment of tens of thousands of people in countries where extreme poverty is rampant.

Eden is now recognized as one of the most cost-effective reforestation projects on the planet.  While their primary goal is to lift people out of extreme poverty, Eden has also become a model for environmental restoration and land management.

We believe it is our responsibility to give back to nature.  By purchasing you will support the afforestation of the landscape, cleaner air, create employment, assist with skills development and create better living conditions for generations to come.
