Our Home and Process

our Home and Process

For visitors to South Luangwa, a stop at Tribal Textiles is an event in their safari calendar. It enables you to step back from watching the wild animals of the Luangwa and catch an insight into the community spirit of Mfuwe and discover our unique artistic process.

You can do a bit of shopping, sit down and relax in our leafy Courtyard Cafe or practice your creative skills by performing an Art Safari and painting your own cushion to take home. 


our community projects

Over the years Tribal Textiles has made a conscious effort to give back to the community which surrounds us.

Below is information about local crafts and recycling projects we are supporting, a school we have co-founded and a charity set up in memory of one of our Tribal Textiles employees.
