building brighter futures
In partnership with Made51 and UNHCR, Tribal Textiles has set up an artisan project in Mantapala refugee settlement, Zambia. Our Mission: create sustainable impact through creative craftsmanship.
Woven Wall Bags
Available in three different sizes, these vibrant wall bags were inspired by traditional Congolese Kuba patterns. Colourful storage solutions!
Our wall hangings come in three different lengths and are the perfect addition to any eclectic home. Taking patterns from traditional Kuba cloth and hand woven in palm leaf.
Perfect for plants or storage, these woven pots we're handcrafted by Congolese refugees in Zambia.
Tribal Textiles x Made51 collaboration
We are happy to announce that we are now Nest certified.
The Nest Seal is a symbol of assurance to let you know that the items you buy at Tribal Textiles, have been ethically handcrafted in our small workshop.
The Nest Ethical Handcraft Program was created to generate industry-wide transparency and compliance for production.
OUR SOCIAL IMPACT
Located in a remote region of Zambia, we strive to strengthen our small, rural community by creatively supporting conservation and investing in local initiatives.
We reinvest 5% of each purchase in local community and wildlife conservation initiatives.
Inspired by Africa
Our hand painted textiles blend traditional Batik techniques with contemporary composition and bold colours.
From the animals that roam the land we live in to the iconic motifs of Africa’s vibrant heritage, our textiles draw inspiration from the culture and wildlife that surround us.
Each of our products is made by hand with respect for the environment and people.
From design to production, we minimise our environmental impact by sourcing locally, using sustainable materials, and repurposing waste.
Rooted in Community
Community is at the core of everything we do. We believe in creating a sustainable impact through grass-roots development and providing artisans with opportunities.
