Desk Accessories from Africa, via West Elm

Sarah Lonsdale September 06, 2012

Papier-mâché desk accessories good enough for use beyond the office.

We're loving these papier-mâché office goods spotted at West Elm. Made by a collaborative from Wola Nani, a Cape Town–based AIDS–awareness nonprofit, the accessories are made from recycled pieces of paper with an oil based finish. The collection consists of four different products in four patterns. N.B.: Wola Nani is a Xhosa word meaning “we embrace and develop one another.”

Above: Pencil Cups in four different patterns; $12 each.

Above: Tray in Camel Spot; $16.

Above: Waste Basket in Black Hatch; $39.

Above: Small Bowl in Red Dot; $12.
