Eco friendly event decor by Lucidity Africa
1. Creative up-cycled furniture
Over the years, we’ve accumulated excessive rubber tyre waste. Instead of disposing it, we opted to repurpose it.
We now wrap waste tyres in various designs with natural sisal and polyester yarn to create incredible pouffes for concerts and picnics.
2. Faux flowers from newspapers and old journals
We create faux flowers from waster newspapers and fabric. We use them in jars and vases as table centerpieces and they’re suitable for any type of event.

For elaborate table decor, we make assorted table mats made from natural materials like raffia, sisal and cane. You’ll love them for their ethnic feel which helps to create a festive mood in any set up.
