Handcrafted by the Chulu family, an artisan group from the Luangwa Artisan Collective in Zambia. These unique large pendants create a big impact in a home, boutique lodge, office or hospitality outlet. With the finest ilala palm fronds carefully split to form elegant tendrils, they add connection in a voluminous ceiling as a statement piece, or grouped together for the ultimate wow factor.
Ilala palm is indigenous to Zimbabwe and grown in dry and sandy areas. They are non-invasive, plentiful and readily available. The fibrous leaves, once dried, are naturally cream in colour. The leaves can be stripped and sliced to either create a fine or thick fibre dependent on the style of the piece they are producing.
The artisans from Luangwa Artisan Collective are independent artisans that work out from Tribal Textiles, and all sale proceeds go directly to them and their families. We train those local artists in product development and business skills such as merchandising, accounting and pricing. We work with them to create beautiful products and give them access to local and global market places.
