Craft Art shop

The farmhouse at Madi a Thavha hosts a large art and craft shop, selling items mostly produced by local artists. By buying from them and providing product development, artists and crafters are empowered. In return, they offer guests at Madi a Thavha the opportunity to bring them a visit. The following products are available:

Fashion accessories

Bed and bath products

Christmas decorations

Interior products


Kids and baby products

Musical instruments

Paper products and cards


Table and kitchen products

Traditional objects

Wall decorations

All products in the Craft Art shop are strongly connected to the rich heritage of the region. An example: elements from traditional beadwork are used in a variety of articles such as handbags, cushions, table cloths, throws and framed objects. The heritage elements used add value to an otherwise ordinary cushion and the meaning of certain elements or colours turns the objects into something special. In this case it reflects the vibrant character of the people of this region.
