African tribal textiles August 9, 2014

We love what these guys do!

Tribal textiles is a mix of traditional African art with contemporary designs, drawing inspiration from the stunning Zambian wildlife and surroundings. Each piece is drawn and painted by local Zambian men and women in a rich palette of hand-mixed colours, providing jobs in an area where employment is scarce.

Their objective: to create unforgettable and exquisite textiles whilst working in harmony with nature and benefitting the local community.

It’s so inspiring to see that they began in  1991 with just a handful of local artists to a thriving international business employing over 100 people. Tribal textiles also helped in co-founding a local community school.

Despite a truly global presence, the essence and heart of Tribal Textiles will always remain in the African bush with the Zambian people.
