AOC 34 in Milan was born in 1965 from the idea of Yohannes Primo, a young merchant originally from Asmara, an Italian colonial site in Central Eritrea. Over time this reality has become a central pole of inter-transcontinental trade in Northern Italy. AOC 34 in Milan, still today represents the fulcrum of the Milanese Eritrean community, managing to re-establish that identity between the meeting place and the place of exchange that has always existed, from the Islamic Suli to the Middle Eastern bazaars. The warehouse as Primo likes to call it, has a varied activity that has focused mainly on wholesale and retail sales of handicrafts and fabrics from all over the world, with particular attention to the African and Eastern areas. And it is precisely Yohannes Primo, creator and tireless promoter of the activity, who personally goes to the areas of his interest, establishing himself sometimes for months, so that he can better penetrate the cultural system that produces the art and craftsmanship of those countries. With a varied clientele made up of wholesalers, designer designers and common people, from AOC 34 in Milan it is possible to find an assortment and quantities sufficient to satisfy even the most demanding, being able to guarantee the accuracy and specificity of a boutique combined with the convenience of a cash and carry of large distribution. A visit from AOC is therefore something more than a simple purchase: you will find yourself at a crossroads where the main non-European civilizations meet, inebriated by the scents of Africa and attracted by the mystery of the East.
