The Bambara people are the largest ethnic group in Mali and for centuries have practiced rituals of initiation, births, death, weddings and spiritual worship.
Masks play a very important role in rituals and are used as mediators between the living world and that of the dead. In Bambara culture, elaborate headdresses form the main part of ceremony where they are worn by dancers to ensure success in vocations such as hunting or fishing.
Collection: Nomad Tribe
Made in: Mali, Africa
Our love for unique, high quality, and environmentally-sustainable home furnishings inspired us in curating our Nomad Tribe range. Steeped in the rich visual traditions of the African continent, each of these handcrafted items highlights the beauty of natural materials and their textures.
We source from local artisans across a number of countries including Malawi, Zimbabwe, Cameroon, Swaziland, Tonga and Burkina Faso just to name few. The original pieces we source are then repaired and restored in South Africa.
Quality comes first; our products are designed and built to last.
