6 Things Every Afropolitan Needs in Their Home
Posted on October 26 2017
In honor of JOONAFRICA'S launch, we put together a special list of items every #afropolitanhome and #afropolitankitchen should have. JOONAFRICA is an online global community that features stunning features for the “classic AFROPOLITAN household”. In this space, you can find high quality goods that are designed with an appreciation for African style, design, and cuisine.
Our products are inspired by the Afropolitan [African + Cosmopolitan] experience. Afropolitans are chic, fly, and culturally savvy people either of African descent or with much exposure to the African continent and a very global outlook on life. We hope to add to the already existing culture and worldview of creative, politically aware, multicultural beings.
