Handmade African Chess Sets

Ezeshafrique is an online platform connecting African artisans to consumers and retailers in the US and beyond. We scoure the African continent looking for a range of beautifully handcrafted products that are unique to the African continent.

Every two weeks we showcase different products that are available in limited quantity.

Our customers are people who are looking for unique products that they cannot find anywhere else. Our products also make the perfect gifts because of their uniqueness


Inspired by the Swahili word for "empower", Ezesha Afrique (or Empowering Africa) represents the vision to financially empower African artisans by expanding their market reach beyond their traditional local economies, to broader international markets.

Across Africa, thousands of artisans and designers make a living crafting beautiful and exquisite products. Around the world, millions of consumers have have increasing needs for authentic handmade items. 

Ezesha Afrique bridges these two sides together while enabling artisans with increased income and worldwide brand recognition.

We believe that everyone should be allowed to take advantage of the interconnectedness that comes with a globalized world.
