This variant is currently sold out
The perfect addition to your nature-inspired space, these small wooden giraffes are expertly carved using locally sourced mukwa wood by the artisans from the Luangwa Artisan Collective. Beautifully displaying the natural grain of the mukwa wood, these make for a thoughtful gift fo any giraffe lover.
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 international wholesale markets. We built for them an all-weather work and market place on Tribal Textiles ground, where they can sell to visitors.
While the design and technique are the same, each artisan has his own way of carving, making each piece unique in its own special way. The mukwa wood used is sourced from trees that have naturally-fallen or are licensed by the Community Resources Board.

I love this wood carving. It is made from a beautiful piece of wood with a warm brown color which adds to the overall impact of the carving. The lines are simple and elegant which perfectly capture a giraffe's grace. This is the first carving I ordered from Tribal Textiles, but it won't be the last.
What more can I say? Simple and elegant is exactly what they are. And just as I feel about everything I have bought from Tribal Textiles, they channel the energy of this amazing company. I can’t know who, exactly, made these sculptures, but I feel connected on a visceral level, halfway around the world from where I sit.
Excellent service, good communication and delivery. Giraffe carvings are lovely.
