Ethnicraft Ancestors Tabwa


Introducing one of Ethnicraft's latest ranges - the Ancestors Tabwa collection. As the name suggests, the Ancestors collection draws inspiration from ancient cultures and celebrates Ethnicraft's rich origins.

The premium line looks to incorporate traditional tribal art with modern style by taking minimalistic design structures and transforming every piece with carefully hand carved tribal motifs. The stunning mix of modern shape and traditional carving, means that every piece in this collection oozes a unique and striking style. 

Tabwa is the first chapter in Ethnicraft's traditional Ancestors series. This collection looks at the Tabwa tribe located in Central Africa, taking inspiration from their intricate artisanal craft and art which employs the use of continuous linear patterns. One of the most prominent shapes in Tabwa art is the triangle which represents continuous life and rebirth. You will see in Ethnicraft's Tabwa collection that they have incorporated detailed triangular design's to emulate the tribe's culture and beliefs. 

As expected, Ethnicraft uses quality teak that shows off the rich and intricate carvings featured in this collection.
