Our Story Begins in Africa...
Our story begins in Africa. We were born in South Africa and although our family moved to the UK when we were children, our hearts belong to the African continent and we spent all our free time at the family farm or in the bush. We love its peace, its ability to ground us in a hectic world and its healing powers.
Blending two worlds and two aesthetics: the raw integrity and calming neutral tones of the African bush, with the sleek, elegant lines of modern design, Khayni offers a unique style approach. But it is more than just an aesthetic. Khayni offers a chance to create a sanctuary in your home. Born of our love of nature and nurturing qualities of the bush, Khayni is a way to introduce comforting luxury into your home. Beautiful, contemporary interiors do not need to be devoid of meaning and soul.
We carry a unique selection of quality-driven, curated products for anywhere in the home. Our covetable collection of timeless pieces are sure to transform your house into a tranquil home in no time. From curated essentials to statement pieces our thoughtfully edited collections create a foundation for natural living. We carry a wide array of well-crafted pieces from local and global artisans.
We believe in a sustainable approach to all that we do and ensure that all pieces are sustainably and ethically sourced. We work with the well-established structure of African buyer and trading networks, who are often members of the communities. That way local customs are respected and a fair price, as set by the artisans and traders, is paid for the goods so that their businesses can make profits to help to improve the social and economic conditions of their communities as well as ensuring a large network of people profit from the trade. We do not believe in undercutting these traditional customs and going directly to communities to barter cheap prices to make more profit and sell goods at unsustainable prices to generate higher sales. We also invest in the repair and restore of pieces to their original authenticity. Often community and vintage items need extra love and care before they are ready to sell. We work with additional artisans to clean, polish, repair and restore to provide high quality pieces that will last you years to come.
Our curated pieces sit alongside our very own line of exclusively designed and Made by Khayni designed collections. Our Made by Khayni collections focus on exceptional craftsmanship and high-quality materials to ensure that you are investing in pieces that will age well over time. We work with a range of natural materials that have been sourced sustainably, to create a foundation for natural living. We work with artisans that combine modern and traditional techniques, with many pieces being finished by hand to ensure a natural finish to our collections to tie in with our signature Khayni aesthetic and style.
At the heart of what we wish to achieve with Khayni, is to shine a light on the beauty of the natural world, celebrate local and traditional craftsmanship and to make these carefully curated pieces more accessible for everyone to enjoy.
Khayni living is designed to cut through the noise of modern life, encouraging a more grounded and natural lifestyle. We're your destination for a natural, laid-back lifestyle and turning your house into a home, made for living.
