ASILI is a collaborative design platform with social impact. We guide collaborations between contemporary designers and East African artisans. Our name borrows from the Swahili word for essence, genesis, the source of something. It stands for the truth or fundamental nature of a person or object.
ASILI was established as a way to bring ideas together; heritage and present day, craft and industry. Each partnership considers the true character of a natural material within a modern design framework. ASILI objects are used in daily life, leave a lasting impression, and harmonise with other items in the home.

ABOUT VIOLETHello my name is Violet and I started Georgie Paws last year when I was 13 years old. I am a young entrepreneur and I have finally decided to ask my mum to help build a business. My business is built around one of my favourite thing in the world – Dogs!
My mum is an entrepreneur and helps lots of people with their business start-ups. I wanted to design dog collars and other luxury accessories. I have learnt that it's always better to use the best materials we can afford to, as usually it will last longer and look better with age. I also spoil my dog George at Christmas and his birthday – (funny, I don't do this for my cat….)
I looked at the treats and gifts available, and saw I could do something fun and classy. I keep coming up with ideas, so I have a long term plan for Georgie Paws - like us on Facebook or follow Instagram to be the first to see my new designs.
I hope you find something you like in Georgie Paws and your dog will be happy with a smile.

A Company who specialises in storytelling through gift ware, all of which are made with hand and heart.
"Short Story" evolved in late 2009 when a small gift box of special Japanese papers gave life to a childhood hobby and marked the beginning of an amazing creative venture for both William and Carolyn. Being their own harshest critics, William and Carolyn both spent many months creating, innovating, cutting and folding, testing and trialling until after many hours of work, their passion and vision culminated in the creation of their first signature frame.
It was simple and tasteful and consisted of beautifully hand folded origami butterflies in a box frame.
From here-on the range grew to include gift cards, paper jewellery, stationary, soy candles, string lights and they are constantly striving to create innovative products of the highest quality.
Paper is a common theme in most "short story" products and much time and effort is spent sourcing the most intricate papers from all over the world.
"short story" is bringing back the intimacy and personal touch that was once associated to card writing and paper alike.
Coming from diverse backgrounds and going against the grain to start their own enterprise took courage, spirit and determination. Therefore it is a second passion for the duo to design stunning products with an inspirational story to tell.
