Nomad Tribe

Made in: Malawi, East 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, Swaziland, Tonga and Burkina Faso to name just a few. The original pieces we source are then repaired and restored in South Africa. Perfect in a cluster of different sizes for a textured wall feature, our Tonga Baskets are handwoven by African women using the ancient African weaving techniques. These baskets are made using dried vines and palm leaves and are given an aesthetic touch with unique geometric patterns painted on them. Every piece is crafted with love and no two pieces are the same.

Ideal for creating a textured wall feature, our Tonga Baskets come in a variety of sizes and are meticulously handwoven by African women employing traditional weaving methods. Crafted from dried vines and palm leaves, these baskets are adorned with distinct geometric patterns, adding an artistic flair. Each piece exhibits its own individuality, ensuring no two pieces are identical.
