Handcrafted Treasures from Africa
Shopping Cart



I wanted a present from Africa very quickly and Kathleen did her very best to get some pottery which I chose from the website into the post at very short notice. I did receive them in time and was able to give them as presents. Kathleen went out of her way and worked overtime to get this African pottery to me.

I’m very happy with the jewellery I bought from African Dream.

I just came back from South Africa where I saw Creative Copper jewellery for the first time and I bought there a necklace and earrings.

I found by African dream complementary pieces. The communication with Kathleen was very good.

She made it possible for me to receive extra pieces by having them delivered to the Netherlands. The delivery was very fast.

Dear friends,

Its with great passion for Africa that I wish to let you know about the great deeds for Kathleen in touching and transforming the life of an African child.

I met Kathleen early this year during Her trip here in Kenya and i introduced here to some of the Orphanages and women groups who prepare jewellery. I was moved by her passion toward the orphans and indeed she sent me to one of the homes with a package of donations. These included clothes, schooling materials e.g pens, mathematical sets, markers etc, football clothes as well as balls among others.

Through her deed a child was able to have a decent cloth,go to school and play football when out of school.
I was also struck by the fact that Kathleen also bought a lot of jewellery from the women groups and what excited me most is her concern for QUALITY PRODUCTS.

Out of the money that these parents got they were able to send their children to school. Most of these women are HIV and this is their only source of income.

Through Kathleen an African’s child life has been transformed. Its this little things that we do in life that brings might.
God bless you as you fight for the African child.

For my cousins Christmas I purchased a wooden bowl with a little wooden giraffe bending over the side as if it was drinking from a waterhole. It also has painted animal prints on the outside.

Kathleen was great, very helpful and nice and the bowl is beautiful. My cousin will love it.

I would like to extend our thanks and support to African Dream.

The nature, quality and diversity of the ornaments and gifts that are available from African Dream are outstanding. In search of gifts for family members we spoke to Kathleen and identified several attractive handcrafted ornaments that were original in their design, but also would help support the African community.

After presenting the gifts to the respective receivers, we received comments of how attractive they were and how original in their design.

As such if you are looking for a unique piece of ethnic art, we would recommend speaking with African Dream.

I bought 2 wooden giraffes today from African Dream, 2ft and 3ft, just wanted to say I’m absolutely delighted with them, they look stunning on my fireplace. My husband is very impressed with them as well.

I look forward to getting them some friends. Lovely to meet Kathleen and see her photos of the artist at work in Kenya, great to be able to see who has taken so much time to make such amazing pieces of art.

The beautiful handcrafted products imported by Kathleen have provided me with superb gift solutions since I discovered her business African Dream. I framed two waxed prints for a relative, and found it hard to part with them! Wearing African Dream jewellery always draws admiring comments and questions about where it can be purchased – it’s truly unique and eye-catchingly gorgeous. If I had a retail business I would certainly be stocking this products – especially since Kathleen ensures a fair price and a better standard of living for those who handcraft them – and STILL manages to sell them at a really affordable price!

As a member of Knowsley Chamber of Commerce Kathleen was involved in a campaign for Liverpool John Lennon Airport and KLM Airlines.

She was a pleasure to work with, and she was subsequently seen featured on billboards across the city, in adverts in newspapers and online using various social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, the Airport’s own website and the web site of KLM Airlines.

We wish her every success as she takes her company forward, and look forward to flying her to Africa again.

I held an African dream evening in my home hosted by Kathleen, and a wonderful time was had by all. I was very surprised at how many different products African Dream has to offer. The work and detail that goes in to producing this beautiful collection is truly amazing. Kathleen is a friendly host who captured everybody’s attention with her African history, she worked very hard, and it showed in the amount of products purchased on the night. I would recommend anyone to have an African Dream evening and of course you benefit with 10% commission on everything that is purchased,plus have some fun at the same time.

I ordered the 4ft hand carved giraffe for my cousins 50th. The service was great as it was despatched and arrived on the stated days. The giraffe has beautiful markings and a lovely face and my cousin was very very pleased with it.

Visited African Dream’s shop today, very surprised at the diverse range of gifts for sale and the prices were extremely reasonable.

The quality of the hand made goods is superb made by crafts people who are very skilled and talented. The lady business owner is lovely, and her commitment to the people of Africa who make her goods is humbling.

Well worth a visit if you are in the area, and also a wander around the farm.


African Dream is a lovely little shop with unique gift ideas. The owner was very helpful and interesting and could explain who had made each of the hand-made products. I was made up with my purchase and will be back again soon!
