Get a well-travelled vibe without packing a single suitcase.
Africa's rich history of handmade objects is influencing a curated take on crafts from designers worldwide. So, you can get an artisanal, eclectic look by collecting MonkeyBiz's hand-beaded animals from the townships of Cape Town (proceeds go to disadvantaged women in Africa), framing prints by Philadelphia-based illustrator Andrea Pippins or picking up the woven Flo table from Italian firm Driade. Even if a safari isn't on the agenda, you can still get a global look.
