About Us

We are explorers and story tellers of the lands afar. We search for rare and one-of-a-kind pieces with distinct stories, reflecting the values, emotions and customs of the various ethnic groups throughout the African continent.

All corners of Africa are explored to be able to share with you the intriguing tales of these treasures. To us, the story is an integral part of each piece, and now you can be a part of it too.

Everything we have has been carefully hand-selected to bring you the a collection of original, handcrafted art pieces made with skills long forgotten.

The rustic baskets, antique beads, hand carved dolls, elaborate stools and many others are made using ancient techniques that have lived on through generations.

All items are sustainably handmade by local African artisans, using natural and recycled materials

The Mother & Daughter Team

Claudia De Lemos:

Being born in Mozambique and raised in South Africa, I’ve had the privilege to live with the beauty and diversity of Africa, its cultures, traditions and unique expressive art. I found myself collecting many beautifully handcrafted pieces by talented artisans from this life experience.

I moved to Portugal in 2018 and desired to bring a part of Africa with me, as its still very much in my heart. The art and craft Africa produces is so unique and beautiful that it inspired me to create AMARI HOME and share this passion with the world.

Jessica De Lemos:

“I’ve always had a passion for Nature and helping communities. I graduated in Environmental Management and worked in areas of consulting and philanthropy, where I could pursue this passion and create social change. Growing up between Mozambique and South Africa, I was exposed to the unique art pieces made by local artisans or disadvantaged communities. This fueled my admiration for African art and interior design, inspiring me to promote the concept of sustainability through handmade art pieces, while helping many artisans and communities.”
