Nairobi artisans complement the organic shapes of dried gourds, which grow prolifically in Africa, with a beautiful dip-dyed finish.
Because gourds are an organic item, each shape is completely one-of-a-kind, and gourds may feature small blemishes. See images for reference, sets will vary.
Sold in sets of three or four. Sets of four include one of each color gourd. Sets of three include three of the same color. Size: approximately 3.5" - 4.5"D x 4.5" - 6"T.
At the Ndima Crafts' finishing shop in Nairobi’s industrial district, roughly a dozen artisans of varied ethnicities 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.
