Founded by Kiwi couple Eve and Hamish, Asili was established as a means to work with African Artisans and their natural materials. Asili was born after a trip to Uganda and Kenya in 2017. With their design backgrounds (Eve interior Architecture, and Hamish Spatial design) and shared passion for art, design and culture, the couple fell in love with the materials Africa had to offer and the incredible craftsmanship of the artisans they met.
