Koricha is an importer of African Art, Jewelry and other artifacts from all across Africa. As of November 2011, Koricha has supplied handcrafted world-trade baskets and artifacts to its customers for online purchase via Overstock.com.
Koricha was established in 2011 in California. The company is aimed at bridging the gap between the cultures of Africa with the United States by introducing the cultures of African countries through artifacts, gifts and other handicrafts plus music and more.
We currently stocks handcrafted grass baskets. These baskets are made in Ethiopia in various designs, sizes, shapes and colors by artisans we work with directly. Most of these products have practical daily uses in the African community and through these artifacts, we will introduce to you, the different cultures of Africa and create connections. In addition to providing individuals in the community with our products and services, we will hopefully work with government organizations and large businesses and assist in diversity programs across the country and promoting an environmentally friendly workplace.
Koricha will primarily work with women as their suppliers and artisans and will work to establish women’s cooperatives across Africa to support each other and their communities to further promote African women’s independence and self-sustenance.
