The ancient craft making skills in Africa is passed on from one generation to another. A child masters through endless days they spend watching and imitating their parents at work. As they grow and practice, their skills and passion for the tradition is sharpened and enhanced.
There is clear division of labor in these African societies with women making jewelries and weaving while men practiced hand carvings, leather works and smithing. However, in recent years, the line has been blurred and majority of women from certain communities are able to live to their full artistic potential by incorporating some of the skills that had been set aside for men only, into weaving and jewelry making as seen in our products.
