Enchanting journey
        Towards the Rainbow tribes
              Through the Universe Africa

If it ever happened to you that on a cold winter day you wander on the unknown streets of the city in search of an unanswered question, if you ever happened to restlessly look for something beyond ordinary, for the extraordinary butterfly of your soul, then take a walk towards the water front and enter into a beautiful art and textile African store but be aware as you navigate through this little African universe you might hear the humming of all those pure human beings who have woven those colorful cloths, be alert you might  feel the presence of many other butterflies!

I highly recommend you to explore this art store and wish you enjoy the beautiful unique art works and a unique individual behind all those art collection named Kofi.


“I wore the Kente cloth for the rest of the librarians’ conference, and had many interested comments. I hope that some of the attendees made it down to the shop to see you as they said they would.

Here at home, I brought the cloth in to my workplace. I work at the University of Victoria Bookstore, and we have a policy of ethical buying, so the Kente cloth was particularly appropriate. We had the cloth on display for a while as part of an African promotion, and publicized your website with it. Hopefully we will be able to display it again in the future.”

“So many thanks for sharing the vision of our shared cosmology whose origin is ever present and whose source came out of Africa!  Will see you again!”

“Before I come to Universe Africa I was so depressed.  But after seeing all those colours, suddenly I felt a big change in my body. I felt so happy; that happiness helped me to forget my stress. I must say you have that little EXTRA; the one that changes ORDINARY things to EXTRA ORDINARY. Your collection is proof of your uniqueness. Your great personality shows how kind, helpful and creative person you are. Keep it up. Our World needs people like you. God Bless You. Take care. Regards,”
Pooja M.

“I came downtown today for rest (and may be a little excitement).  Your store is full of beautiful African treasures. Thank you for letting me come.  I look forward to visiting Africa one day soon.  Thanks!  Your store is beautiful.  Good luck with everything you do.”

“It’s a miracle, I feel so free of my worries.  This place gives me all the opposite power which I’ve not felt for along time.  I wish you all the best for all the people here (in Toronto) and all over the world.”

Thank you for the pictures and for a wonderful outing!  The girls went back to school  to spread the word about Black History Month.  I have been telling my colleagues and friends what a great store you have. You have a beautiful store and a great spirit. We really appreciated your hospitality.

We'll be back soon!!!


“The thing I (like) the best is your cultures view on raising children.  It takes the whole village – which I believe is the way it should be!  Your generosity and kindness so my daughter feels comfortable and part of the African culture is very much appreciated.  You have positively affected her life!  Kind regards.”
