AVOOVA ostrich eggshell designs are a rare and precious form of functional art. AVOOVA creates furniture and decorative accessories cloaked in a sensual mantle of ostrich eggshell, one of the world’s most durable organic veneers.
Hundreds or thousands of shards of broken eggshell - collected from local ostrich farms - are painstakingly selected and placed in individual designs, which undergo a series of elaborate processes to protect and enhance their beauty.
The designs are infused with a sophisticated African sensuality - marrying tones of ivory shell, the timeless beauty of the ancient Karoo and the demands of contemporary lifestyles.
AVOOVA has blossomed into one of South Africa’s most beautiful and innovative luxury products. Only available through the company’s exclusive retail partners and its own stores in the Western Cape and Johannesburg, a limited selection of AVOOVA products can now be purchased online through this website (Residents of South Africa only).
