Terracotta and Jute Vase
This vase looks so earthy and rustic we love it. It reminds us of the beautiful red earth vases hand-made in Nigeria23cm xH19 cm
Why it's on The Cornrow?
The Cornrow Home Collection is inspired by none other than our co-founder Kemi of Cottage Noir. These are items which represent our mission to showcase a modern Black Aesthetic. The Black Aesthetic so varied - Africa and the Diaspora is vast and so are the styles and cultures it has produced and we aim to showcase as much of it as we can.
The Cornrow, founded by sisters Kemi (big sis) and Lara (little sis) in 2020, is a heartfelt tribute to their African and Caribbean heritage. With a deep passion for homeware, books, and lifestyle products that celebrate the Black experience, the sisters scour the globe for joyful representations of their culture. Kemi, who left a career in corporate finance during the UK lockdown, is the driving force behind The Cornrow, sharing her love for the brand on Instagram @CottageNoir. Lara, an accomplished digital marketing professional, is committed to supporting Black-owned brands and can be found on TikTok at ThisIsLaraLand. The Cornrow is a true family affair, with their mother Yasmin providing creative advice and gift-wrapping services @yasminwrapstar, and Yasmin's partner Jonathan, formerly of Chelsea Design Centre, offering invaluable retail advice. Together, they are on a mission to spotlight under-represented stories of Black and African diaspora design, introducing "Afro-aristo" as a fresh addition to traditional design trends.
