Niema is of Swahili origin and means "Beautiful /Happy". My vision for Niema's Treasures was inspired by an unquenchable appetite for design, art, and history, After completing my studies in these areas, I began designing and making various pieces, which lead to the creation of Niema's Treasures.
Niema’s Treasures was inspired by Oceanic culture, such as coastal Africa, Australia, New Guinea, Melanesia, and Polynesia. The richness of cultural style and the use of materials, colors and organic components as a foundation for adornment and decoration was the unique expression of its people. Natural materials were used for every aspect of life.
It is this idea that cultivated my interest in art, design and natural living. Our site is an exploration of how we can use natural materials in everyday modern life.
