Nairobi artisans complement the organic shapes of dried gourds, which grow prolifically in Africa, to make beautiful decorative ornaments with hand painted designs. Each gourd features a variety of safari animal designs around it.
Because gourds are an organic item, each shape is completely one-of-a-kind, and designs will vary as well. Size: approximately 6"D x 8-10"T.
At the Ndima Crafts' finishing shop in Nairobi’s industrial district, roughly a dozen artisans of varied ethnicity transform raw materials into art under the leadership of Charles Ndibe. Charles' exacting standards of quality and friendly demeanor make him one of Swahili Modern's most reliable vendors.
