years at the edge

Designer, Garth Williams starting working in Zimbabwe in 1991 with a small group of highly skilled artisans. An Afro-centric range using recycled metal, wood and rapoka stone was developed and later that year Afrika Trading was established.


By combining different metals with different finishes and paying close attention to detail his designs became well known and sort after.
 
Gradually the ranges grew and during the subsequent 10 year period he significantly shaped the art scene in Zimbabwe by improving techniques and introducing new concepts, especially with recycled metals.
 
The economic crisis in 2001, which lead to political instability and massive inflation, forced Garth Williams to leave Zimbabwe in 2002.
 
Afrika Trading then rebranded and became known as Edge Company.
 
After some work in Poland and the Czech Republic Garth Williams is currently working in India.
 
The use of new materials and the sophisticated finishing techniques which are available in India has enabled him to take on some exciting new projects.
  
This has resulted in a constant flow of fresh new ranges, many of which are regularly featured in glossy Home, Garden and Lifestyle magazines within the UK.
 
Garth Williams has launched his latest collection for Spring/Summer 2017.
