COUTH is celebrating African creatives through boutique homeware and apparel collections.

Created and curated by Yelda Bayraktar, who has worked on the Vitra Design Museum Making Africa Exhibition, Gestalten’s publication Africa Rising and the Alara concept store in Lagos, COUTH is inspired by contemporary African architecture, design, craft and street style.

COUTH blends these influences with a commitment to the continent’s techniques, materials and craftsmanship.
