DUBARUBA is a platform for the finest contemporary African and Africa-inspired products.

Are all products made in Africa?

Currently all our products except the Devine Chocolate are made in Africa.

Are all the products on DUBARUBA fair-trade certified?

Some of our products are fair-trade certified. But most of our designers and producers are not certified fair trade because of the high certification and administration costs that are required. However, our frequent appearances at the workshops make sure that no worker or producer is marginalized while producing the products we offer on our platform. Producers that violate our rules to grant every worker fair payment and treatment will be suspended from DUBARUBA.
