Our Company

  In 1998 BLACK IMAGE has been founded in Bremen (Germany) as a retail shop for arts and crafts of high quality from sub-saharan Africa. As the demand was increasing we started a few years later with wholesale activities and in 2004 BLACK IMAGE-NATUREWORLD e.K. was finally established as its own wholesale company.

BLACK IMAGE-NATUREWORLD e.K. is specialized in dealing with highly decorative natural products from Westafrica: We import dried seeds, pods, fruits and other parts of plants as well as horn-hollows and snails. Our customers are florists and interior decorators in Europe, North- and Southamerica and in the Far East.
