Overview

The AVOOVA flagship store is located on the bustling Bree Street in the Centre of Cape Town - surrounded by popular shops, bars and dining experiences. AVOOVA designs and creates exquisitely handcrafted decor, jewellery and object's d'arts made out of hundreds or thousands of pieces of ostrich eggshell. The company focuses on community upliftment, social responsibility and offers modern, sophisticated South African artform to the world. Each AVOOVA piece is intricately designed in a labour-intensive process by a team of more than 50 local artisans in the Karoo town of Prince Albert in the Western Cape. Transforming ostrich eggshell into a beautiful decorative finish by combining functionality with a sophisticated African sensuality has allowed AVOOVA to become one of South Africa's most innovative luxury brands. AVOOVA's hand stitched leather products, exquisite silver jewellery pieces, distinctive photo frames and other beautifully designed Afro chic products are available to suite all price ranges. The AVOOVA signature range of tables, mirrors and bars can be found in some of the most exclusive game lodges, hotels, motor yachts and private homes around the world with a shipping service readily available in store. Visit the AVOOVA shop to experience some of South Africa's most creative, environmentally sustainable and unique pieces of craftsmanship.

AVOOVA is a purveyor of handcrafted ostrich eggshell gifts and accessories located on Shortmarket and Bree, a block from Long. We bought an aluminum Nambe type bowl decorated with ostrich eggshell pieces. It is all fine quality stuff. Highly recommended.
