Lillonboutique.com has come from a passion of sharing part of my Congolese and African culture with the world. I was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
From a very young age, I have always been surrounded with beautiful crafted items from various part Africa as my parents are avid collectors.
I fled my country due to the political unrest and only came back for a visit as an adult in 2013. During that visit, I reacquainted myself with my country, fell in love with it and appreciated her beauty even more.I noticed that Congolese artisans had great potential but had a very small market to sell their wares.I realized that Canada could be a potential and bigger market for Congolese artisans.I saw this as a potential opportunity to share part of culture with my adoptive country Canada. I decided to create an online store to showcase Congolese and other African artisan's work in Canada thus lillonboutique.com was created.
Please join me in this journey and I hope that you will like and buy the items featured on the site. I started with one single country and now I managed to increase it to 13 countries.
