African Artisanal Stool

Tonga Stool

Tonga stools are hand carved by Artisans in Zimbabwe and are historically used by Elders and Nobles. They are characterized by geometric shapes and are used as portable seating. Traditionally, only the head of the household could own and take his place on a Tonga stool. Just by observing a man’s chair you can easily weave together a story about the owner and his position in the wider community. These chairs are surprisingly comfortable, used for rest, work and during traditional meetings.
