Calabash Pot - Stitched


Bring a bit of Africa into your home with an intricately hand-stitched gourd.

Traditionally grown and used throughout East Africa, gourds (also known as calabash) are used for storing or carrying water or food. Once dried, they can be hollowed out and carved, painted or stitched by hand.

The simple yet stunning hand stitching on this bowl makes it a charming centrepiece. Use it as a small planter on your coffee table, pen holder on a desk or place for visitors to put their keys by your front door, it’ll be sure to spark a conversation.

Not only beautiful and functional, but supporting a sustainable form of income to artisans in East Africa.
