We work with an amazing wood cooperative in Kenya called the Kikomba Wood Carving Cooperative that consists of both young and old men who practice woodworking and painting in a open-air workshop. This environmentally responsible group takes great care to legally procure all types of African wood used in their products, and they are skilled at using all parts of the tree in their artwork.
