The Niger Bend refers to a geographic region of West Africa — the area in which we buy most of our products. Our greatest love are one-of-a-kind, finest-quality ethnographic pieces that we discover in our travels.
We have been trading under the name The Niger Bend since 1982. Almost all of the items we sell, we have bought personally. We travel to West Africa frequently to buy and to visit our old trading friends. It is through our many friendships that we have learned to love the peoples and cultures of the area.
The highlighted countries are those from which we import the majority of our products and are the parts of the Continent that we know best.
