Angelina Jolie To Produce African Homeware Products Line

May 15th, 2006 // 24 Comments

Angelina and Brad Pitt are bringing African designed homeware products to a store near you. Well, probably not a store near you, but they are debuting their collection of rugs, pottery and household items at an art fair in Paris in September.

The couple are working with local craftsmen in Namibia to create an assortment of rugs, pottery and other household items. A source revealed: “It combines their two passions. Brad’s involved with design and Angelina is committed to humanitarian work.” All proceeds from the collection will be donated to a local Namibian community.

Meanwhile, Angelina and Brad – who are expecting their first biological child together – met the Namibian first lady last week. Penehupifo Pohamba visited the couple at the exclusive Burning Shore Beach Lodge where they reportedly chatted about possible names for their baby.

Mrs Pohamba said: “We would be honoured if she gave her child a Namibian name.”

Angelina is really get big. We’re getting close people.

    She can call it the Homewrecker’s Homeware line.

  2. I can’t wait to see what the baby looks like!!

    poor thing looks miserable, can’t tell if it’s from a rocky relationship with brad or just being that pregnant

  4. Heather

    Angie doesn’t look miserable. This is just the real woman, without all the hair care and makeup. Most times, she is wearing lipstick and a light foundation or tint on her face.

  5. Heather

    …actually I think she might be wearing lipstick here too.

  6. Tracy

    This couple is SO boring and over. And they wont last … what goes around comes around. Enjoy!

  7. tia

    Tracy I dont think they will last either. Then again we all thought Whitney and Bobby wouldn’t last. So who knows. I agree with Gossip. She does look miserable, but I doubt it has anything to do with Brad. Maybe its just one of them days.

  8. Kris

    I continue to be impressed by Angelina’s efforts to better the world.
    Meanwhile, Jennifer is having herself another whinefest, the latest being how “Friends” spoiled her movie career. LOL
    poor Vince is probably regretting Brad got to Angelina before HE did.

    This story is a load of crap. Notice how these stories always come from female first or national ledger or post chronicle but never from US weekly or People, etc? That’s because they’re crap.

    That said. I just love Angie and I do believe what comes around goes around. Maniston is doomed.

    It’s sad and very, very tough for Jennifer, but this is life.. And all is fair in love. Anyone could be in the shoes of one of those three some day.

    Angelina looks beautiful with little makeup and a baby bump. I saw pic of Aniston sitting next to Courtney and she looked awful,and unattractive. Aniston should be called a homewrecker, because she ruined her own marriage. Calling Angelina a homewrecker is such a cop out. Hope Angelina and Brad last longer then Whineston and Brad. If Brad and Angelina are soo boring why do they get soooo many comments of most blogs.

    Snort at Maryanne29′s comment. I like these two together, but your comment is still hilarious.

  13. courtney.

    Angelina looks awsome!.. you jealous bitches … and they are happy you dumb ass .. talking like you guys are inside their lives .. and Aniston needs to get over as her fans too who are as pathetic as she is … they will last and be happy … if brad and jenn are no longer together is not ’cause Angelina .. he just married the wrong girl in the first place thats all..

    long live the queen and the king Angelina and Brat

    She looks miserable because she’s not wearing her lipstick and tint!!?? That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard! Makeup doesn’t change facial features. She looks miserable because she’s pregnant and walking around in a hot third world country!

  15. Shannon

    Some of you are jealous that Brad married Aniston instead of you right? This isn’t about Aniston. She’s out of the game now, so why don’t you leave her alone? Most tabloids are big liars, even about Aniston. Jolie is still a beautiful woman, but I hope she doesn’t marry Brad. They both have bad track records, so their chances are slim for wedded bliss. Only if they feel really lucky should they should give it a shot.

  16. JerseyGirl

    Haha, I love how it’s always “jealousy”. Why is it that if you don’t like Angelina you must automatically be jealous and overweight? Nobody is loved by everyone so why don’t we just accept it instead of trying to find a way to discredit someone else’s opinion.

  17. Leila

    Shannon what the hell are you talking about “they both have bad track records”? The divorce rate in America alone is more than 50%. Does that mean if you are divorced you have no right to fall in love or get married again? Tell that to Drew Barrymore, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, and half of the “regular” people in the USA. Dumb argument. Brad & Angie are well suited for each other and I honestly think they will make it.

  18. Logic

    Maybe she looks miserable cause the papz still won’t leave them alone. Atleast she doesn’t have that fake smile like Katie …oops…Kate Holmes did while shoping for shoes in the last days of her pregnancy. The woman is about eight months pregnant, of course she isn’t going to smiling like a fool for the photogs. Do you people smile foolishly while you walk. If you would look at candid pics of anyone, they aren’t all going to be smiling. Use common sense.

  19. Shannon

    Third times are sometimes the charm, there are some people who seem destined to fail in relationships. Just something about them. Heck, I know people who have married 5 times. Wonderful, kind people but every time they married I knew it wasn’t going to work.

    George Clooney knows why he doesn’t want to marry. Julia Roberts found true love, but she pursued a married man, as did Jenny McCarthy. Maybe a case of karma because now she’s divorcing. Drew Barrymore is a disaster right now. She should wait a long time. I believe Nicole Kidman can be successful. I’m only predicting on a feeling. Who knows?

  20. Heather

    Angelina has great facial features, but she has days when she looks better and days when she looks worse. She’s human. And I repeat that she’s rarely completely makeup-less.

  21. Heather

    I won’t deny when someone is beautiful, but a Jolie fan I’m not, so don’t expect a lot of praise from me.

  22. OH no!

    Oh no heather won’t praise Jolie, what shall i ever do now? *Looks around confused and sad* ….
    OH WELL!

    i guess with celebrities, it’s always damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
    But admit it, no matter if you like her or not, find her boring or not, you still take the time to look at her pictures and take time out to post about her, so obviously you do give a damn.

  23. Audacte

    I always wait until the dust settles on the comments section of an Angelina/Brad tid-bit. Now, that it has settled; Brava to her for thinking of a way to market their products! I think it is excellent when America’s obession with shopping actually does something positive for others. I would rather support a village in Namibia than buy the piles and piles of….. flowing out of China.

  24. Heather

    Oh no you sound like Mr. Bill. Take a chill pill. I never said I didn’t give a damn about Jolie. Don’t put words in my mouth. I said I’m not a fan of hers. That’s all.
