Villages of Africa, is a unique African import shop nestled near the Blue Ridge Mountains in Roanoke, Virginia.
We love to share the beautiful and ancient artistry of Africa; to work with fair trade artisans, co-operatives and micro- businesses.
Discover afresh the unique, bold shapes and colors incorporated in beautifully designed pieces of jewelry; perfectly carved soapstone figurines and chess sets; We offer finely carved masks and statutes alongside colorful baskets for everyday use, which will delight and enliven your home, your workplace, and your life.
We carry only the most exquisite fabrics, hand-designed and hand-batiked.
Explore the Villages of Africa preserving ancient traditions one piece at a time.
Villages of Africa promotes Fair Trade business practices and a portion of the proceeds are donated to non-profit organizations which focus on the empowerment of women and children.
We have closed our current storefront but will re-open September 1st at the Taubman Museum.
