I have always been fascinated by African culture, particularly the traditional African art. My favorite being the masks like you see to the left. They have their own unique style, and there's really nothing like them! If you share my fascination with African culture, whether it be the traditional clothing, handcrafted jewelry, or the various works of art in which to decorate your home, I found a fantastic online store where you can buy all of these things and more. At AfrikBoutik - African Art & Gifts, you will find hundreds of authentic African products.
If you're an art collector, or just want to spruce up your home with some unique trinkets, you will definitely be interested in the various forms of traditional African art they have, such as the aforementioned masks, oil paintings created by skilled artists of Ghana, the intricate sculptures handcrafted by experienced artisans or the various African Djembe drums created in many styles and sizes to suit your tastes. All are truly beautiful works of art.
If it's African clothing you're interested in, there is a variety of traditional suits to choose from, as well as Dashikis and dress shirts. To "top off" your outfit, with every suit you buy, you get a free matching head wrap or cap. And to accentuate your traditional garb, check out their selection of handcrafted jewelry and leather bags.
One more thing I want to mention is AfrikBoutik's bloggers contest. This contest is open to all bloggers who are legal residents of the U.S.A., Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil & the Caribbean who are 18 years or older. So if you have a blog and would like to write up a post about Afrik-Boutik, this month, you could win the mask at the left, entitled "Old Lawyer," worth $175.00!
