Hand carved from a single piece of Blacknut in West Africa, using centuries old techniques, this stool is produced by the royal family of the Bamun tribe in Cameroon. Trunks of Coffee Shade trees are brought down by the carvers at the request of farmers when they become over grown- this stool brings artisans and agriculture together to enrich one another. The pattern speaks of their creation story where it was the female spider who wove the web which caught creation.

Available in: ebonized, eco-friendly paint (any color), or gold and silver leafing.
