Kikkra® was founded in 2019 by Anthea Maria Ellul and Becky Dalli, two long time friends with a keen interest in the local scene and with an entrepreneurial mindset to bridge ideas.
The Maltese Islands are rich with talent and capabilities so much so that there are hundreds of local artisans who produce impeccable work that might be at times overlooked. We believe that this sector within the Maltese Retail market deserves more praise. That’s when the idea of Kikkra® came along.
Kikkra® will fill the gap and serve as a bridge to increase accessibility of products in the Maltese Islands. We have been slowing growing our own perspectives of what are the missing links in Malta and we do hope that in sharing the stories of the artisans on this platform will help strengthen your understanding in the work and inspiration that goes behind all this.
We have no doubt that you will find it as interesting as it was for us to discover one artisan after an another- Truly this is our honour to them.
The name Kikkra came about when we were in the midst of ideas wanting to create a space where the artisan’s stories are shared with you, the customer.
We want a platform where we can build a connection and start a conversation with one another whilst enjoying your newly purchases from your favourite artists. Most conversations usually take form over a cup of tea, and that is exactly what came to mind with this project.
