Aurora webshop!


Aurora Foundation has been an active participant in the arts and crafts industry through our Sweet Salone project. Icelandic designed goods produced in Sierra Leone have been sold in various shops in Iceland. The designs are often a result of a collaboration between the designers and artisans, as Icelandic designers have visited Sierra Leone several times over the past years (you can read all about our Sweet Salone project here).

In light of our vision to promote products from Sierra Leone and thereby supporting the artisan industry, we are very excited to share our new online platform, . Here, you find an overview of most of the Sweet Salone products designed by different designers such as 1+1+1, As We Grow, and Hugdetta.

If you wish to purchase any of the products, please contact the designer directly via e-mail (which can be found on every product page). Please be informed that at this stage, our platform will only serve as a gallery and not yet as a direct sales platform. Therefore, each designer must be contacted directly for any inquiries.
