Around the botanical world: Africa

Prepare for an explosion of all the senses

During our journey around the botanical world we’re visiting six continents in our quest for botanical inspiration. The most remarkable plant stories, the loveliest flower vases, the best ways to incorporate plants in dishes, fashion inspired by flora and home decor with flowers and plants around the world. This time we’re travelling to… Africa! 

 

Welcome to Africa!

Africa. A gigantic continent with more than 50 incredibly varied countries. From mysterious Morocco to vibrant South Africa. From the pyramids in historic Egypt to the natural power of the Victoria Falls. Deserts, savannah and jungle: this continent offers something for everyone. We picked up plenty of inspiration, with flowers and plants as our guiding theme. 

Be inspired

Travel to the Omo Valley in East Africa and see the traditional costumes that are picked straight from nature. Fancy some botanical fashion inspiration yourself? Check out the finest flower and plant prints for your new summer outfit. Meanwhile, you can also feel like you’re under African skies in your own home with the most stylish flower and plant pots with an African twist. Finally we step into the kitchen for a summery variation on North African hibiscus tea. 

A world to discover

Have we stimulated your lust for travel? Great! During our journey around the botanical world we’ll be visiting not just Africa but also Asia, North America, South America, Oceania and Europe. Grab your passport and an empty suitcase. By the end of this trip the suitcase will be filled with summer flower and plant inspiration!
