Quintessence is a tasteful and exclusive art gallery and gift shop, with a wide range of authentic arts, crafts, furnishing and textiles that include woven fabrics like aso-oke, cloth from okene amnd akwete and various fabrics from Nigeria and other countries. An institution in its own right, this was one of the first few outlets that promoted and developed African arts and crafts by creating an enabling environment for local content produced by local artisans and college graduates.
Other products offer include jewellery, books, toys, bags, clothing for children and adults, home furnishings such as placemats, throw pillows and duvets for both local and international markets, ceramics and other traditional sculptures, all celebrating Africa. A good place to go for a keepsake.
