5 Items We Love From TX Maxx’s New Uganda Homeware Range
As of Monday 3rd April, TK Maxx is launching a new homeware range in conjunction with the Rwenzori Trading Company in Uganda. TK Maxx have been working in Uganda since 2008, enabling more than 10,000 children to go to school by supporting local businesses through the production and sale of coffee, cocoa, cotton and craft.
More and more consumers are starting to consider where the goods they purchase come from. Sustainability and ethics play a part in people’s buying decisions now and thankfully more brands are starting to catch on. By purchasing products like these from TK Maxx you can not only fill your home with good quality, thoughtfully designed pieces, but you’re also playing a part in keeping communities like the war-torn Rwenzori region of Uganda alive.
Tribal trends are just right for the impending Spring/Summer of 2017, so we’ve picked 5 items from the hand-crafted range that we love. Here’s how to work them into your home:
- Multi Coloured Platter | €16.99
Art comes in many different forms, and decorative bowls mounted on a wall is one of them. Mixing and matching wide dishes and bowls in a display in your kitchen/living area is a great way to add interest, texture and colour to an otherwise plain wall.
- Horn Bowl | €22.99
Tribal interiors don’t have to be over done with pattern. A simple pallet of white and neutral tones and textures will create a serene space. This beautifully handcrafted bowl would sit perfectly on a shelf or coffee table or act as a beautiful serving dish.
- Patterned Vase | €16.99
Some of the pieces in the Uganda range scream bohemia and we’re all about this style once the sun comes out. Potting fresh green plants in these woven vases will give any space a vibrant colour pop!
- Rice Spoons | €8.99
The days of alfresco dining and picnics are approaching and tribal accessories are perfect for giving your table setting a beautiful rustic feel. Pair these serving spoons with linen napkins and woven place mats.
- Lidded basket | €19.99
Storage is key within the home, and we’re all about decorative storage at that. These baskets are great for anything from your toiletries to trinkets. Layer them up to create a Spring display in your living room or patio!
