The Woven Suns are expertly handcrafted by Richard, an artisan from the Luangwa Artisan Collective in Zambia. His unique design weaves spikes annd tendrils of ilala palm together with a tight spiral weaving line. Light and beautiful, they bring natural texture to a space.
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.
