Artisan George is in charge of the group who make our beautiful brass hooks, knobs, and knockers. He is based in the capital of the Ashanti Region, Kumasi.
George began working with us in 2018 when Bee met him on her first trip. She bought approximately 20 hooks, and our partnership exploded from there.

Over time our recycled brass hooks will start to tarnish slightly. Some prefer the brass when it becomes darker and more earthy. However you may prefer to restore your hook to its original polished gold tone.
The best way to polish your hook is to use a brass polish, we suggest Brasso (Always follow the instructions on the bottle). If you don't have any brass polish to hand, or prefer a more natural alternative, cover half a lemon in salt and rub over the brass until you see the tarnish start to lift, rinse well and polish dry with a soft cloth.
Avoid prolonged contact with liquids and never spray with room sprays as this will cause the brass to tarnish quicker.
