ORNAMENTAL MALIAN SWORD

The Tuaregs are desert people, and the crafting of swords has long been part of their tradition.  These ornamental swords feature a steel blade engraved in detail.  Sword handles and sheaths are an intricate mix of bronze, silver, copper, bone and handmade leather.  Each piece was hand selected in West Africa, created by Tuareg artists from Mali currently living as refugees in Burkina Faso.   

BOGOLAN TAPESTRY

These incredibly beautiful tapestries are made from hand spun woven cloth made from natural cotton and dyed with natural dyes.  Hand-drawn and designed by artists in Burkina Faso using traditional symbolism and motifs.

SILVER & STONE PENDANTS

These hand-selected large silver and semi-precious stone pendants were created by Tuareg silversmiths from Mali.  Each is a large gorgeous silver etched pendant, clasping a semi-precious stone from the West African region.
