Jolie, Pitt start Namibian enterprise

Controversial couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt plan to launch a range of Namibian homewares after being inspired by their stay in the country.

The pair are currently in Namibia awaiting the birth of their first child, and have combined Pitt's design flair with Jolie's penchant for charity work in manufacturing a collection of rugs, pottery and other household goods locally and selling them abroad.

A source revealed to The Sun: "It combines their two passions. Brad's involved with design and Angelina is committed to humanitarian work. But they won't take any of the money themselves. It will just be their little way of lending a helping hand."

Profits from the range - to be launched at a Parisian art fair in September - will go back into the Namibian community.

Jolie, Pitt start Namibian enterprise

Angelina Jolie, 30, took son Maddox Jolie-Pitt, 4, around the town of Swakopmund, Namibia's second biggest town and traditional "summer capital." Brad Pitt, 42, picked up a few items from the African Art Jewelers store. Mother's Day gift, most likely!
