About Sweet Salone

Aurora Foundation has been actively involved in various development projects in Sierra Leone for over a decade. The country is located on the west coast of Africa and is known for its incredible beauty and rich resource base. It also has one of the lowest per capita incomes in the world. It is a place of close-knit, supportive communities where people of different faiths live together in peace and harmony. Aurora Foundation is a non-profit organization operating under an approved charter. The Aurora Foundation aims to be a dynamic catalyst for development and culture by undertaking programs that provide a strong and lasting boost to the community.

Since 2017, the Aurora Foundation has been connecting international designers with local artisans to create beautiful, handcrafted, sustainable home goods from Sierra Leone. The products are created under the Sweet Salone brand. Salone means Sierra Leone in Krio, one of the main languages ​​of Sierra Leone. With the creativity of the international designers we work with and the expertise and tradition of Sierra Leonean artisans, we create beautiful, sustainable home decor.

Through this project, we aim to better the lives of the artisans we work with and enrich Sierra Leone’s design and craft industries. We work closely with our artisans, ensuring they get fair pay for their work and helping them develop their production.

Stichting Aurora is a subsidiary of the Aurora Foundation, which was set up to sell Sweet Salone products outside of Africa.
