Charlotte du Toit first established Outpost Original in New York City in 1997, designing products out of her NYC apartment and manufactured in her home country of South Africa. Since then, the company has evolved into a Montreal based manufacturing studio with all furniture, pillows, throws and most accessories made in house. Outpost Original brings you a visual celebration of Africa’s extraordinary wealth of handmade objects and the people who craft them.
Their company also supports the conservation and protection of Africa’s wildlife by importing only certified animal skins and horns from reputable tanneries and hunters. To maintain the delicate natural balance between the animals and their habitat, park and government authorities must undertake a controlled annual culling of the herd. The sales from this culling generate additional income which is used to sustain the conservation program. Outpost Original supplies high grade hide and horn products both in quality and certification.
