Amongst the African-related products, including an extensive range of Southern African foods, you'll find Kenyan masks, woven baskets, African painted vases and hand-painted eggs, at Kumusha Store. Also available are Africa-inspired paintings by Yvonne Hatfield. The Kumusha store is run by African students who are happy to talk about the food and origins of the craft items.

Rather than dumping recycled beer and wine bottles, see them transformed into unique drinking glasses and works of art by GlassAware. The bottles are sourced, selected, cleaned, carefully cut, sanded and finally completed with an etched motif. The process is mostly done by hand. Current etched motifs are various African animals.

These elephant salad servers and the bobbly salad bowl are created by Peretti and manufactured by hand from recycled aluminium in South Africa.
They are available in Australia from Attenta, a company that donates a percentage of profits from the sale of their products shelters for abused women in Australia.
