Wood Animal - Giraffe
This variant is currently sold out
5% of each purchase is reinvested in local community and conservation initiatives.
Crafted by the artisans from the Luangwa Artisan Collective, this wooden giraffe is made from local mukwa wood. We only use wood from trees naturally-fallen or licensed by the Community Resources Board. Each animal has unique color variations due to the natural materials used.
The artisans from this small cooperative are independent artisans that work out from Tribal Textiles: 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.

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.
