Who We Are - Our Mission

D.R. Spetka first lived in Africa for a year before officially opening The Niger Bend in 1982.

During the first 20 years of that time, D.R. Spetka traveled extensively in West Africa. However, since the early 2000’s, he decided to expand his traveling to East Africa and Southeast Asia.

Almost everything we have ever bought to sell we have bought ourselves from producers and their representatives in Africa and Asia. We abide by Fair Trade principles and work closely with people in many countries to obtain the best products and crafts to promote the well-being of those people.

DR. Spetka has devoted his life to this effort and has helped many individuals in these countries immigrate to the United States. “I love the people in Africa and Asia with whom I work; I love their art; I love all the places I go to find what I buy. I have become fully integrated into the lives of the people I work with.”

The Niger Bend is devoted to finding the highest quality decor products from around the world; while at the same time, educating customers on the traditions of our products. We hope to enhance the ambiance of any room, provoke discussion, and accentuate appreciation with our unique handmade products.
