“I realised that unless the soul is giving, the product cannot depict beauty.” *
The Tribal Gallery collection is made by hand by our carpenters and upholsterers in Nairobi and by independent artisans across Africa and Asia. This means that the products are wonderful, high quality often one-of-a-kind pieces. The workmanship demonstrates the skill of the artisan and benefit from generations of tradition in design and creation.
Beautiful hand-created pieces are becoming more difficult to find now and the skills of the artisans beginning to disappear in many places. Finding beautiful handmade works, sharing the enjoyment of them with our customers and, in our own small way keeping alive artisanal skills in Nairobi is the most important element in the Tribal Gallery story.
