Art Africa will dazzle you with its collection of ethnic arts, crafts and artefacts from around Africa. The shop is split into a front section that carries funky, contemporary and often recycled items from self-help groups in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and the Northern Province. You'll see fantastic mobiles, bead jewellery, tin items for Christmas trees, tin lizards and wooden animals. The back section has an amazing selection of wooden games, head rests, wooden statues and sculptures, wooden and grass bowls, and bright African fabrics. Says owner Linda Malcolm: "We collect items from across Africa, from Mali and Ghana in west Africa, to Kenya and Ethiopia on the east coast. Also from our neighbours Zimbabwe and Namibia." Art Africa has two branches in Knysna, on the garden route in the Western Cape, called African Attitude.
