Kultured.Kitchens a unique dinnerware brand specializing in marrying the rich history of African culture and design, with the elegance of high-end tableware. More than just a typical plating company, we curate heirloom quality products that you can pass down for generations. In 2019, we launched with the aim of crafting unforgettable dining experiences that showcased the beauty of cultural expression. Believing that life happens around the table, our mission is to help people craft unforgetting experiences, -“one plate at a time”. Ideal for special occasions, but suitable for daily use, our products bring artistry, enlightenment, and soul to any tablescape.
Kultured.Kitchens was created in response to the lack of diverse representation that we saw and still see in the home and dinnerware industry. We didn’t see the voices of Africans in the Diaspora represented, and this absence impressed on us the importance of designing a product that documented and expressed a world view. In seeking to correct this lack of representation, which should not be confused with a lack of presence, Kultured.Kitchens continually works to design collections that tell a unique cultural story, and to provide our customers with products that will help them do the same.
With the introduction of our Bògòlanfini collection, we have taken an important step towards the goal of offering luxury, artisan products that truly represent an African American heritage. Named after the earliest form of communication, mudcloth, these designs tell the story of warrior queens, military leaders, and ancient civilizations. Each hand -selected and authenticated design was chosen to represent pieces of history often forgotten.
Bogolanfini is a collection that looks honestly at our present and is unflinchingly optimistic about our future. As descendants of enslaved people, African American communities have not traditionally had a multitude of heirlooms to pass on. We see that changing, even with all the chaos of our present moment.
