"Crafted Skillfully"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

i bought two chairs, although the production was of different years, still the craftsmanship was skillful some color variation though. but, overall the product was neatly crafted, packed and delivered local customs are a big headache though, costing quite a lot

"Woez(o) to Xorlali. Beautiful djembe drum."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I purchased this hand-carved djembe drum which is both a work of art and an amazing musical instrument. My daughter lived in Ghana in a village called Xavi for two years. When we visited we were part of a celebration that included drumming and dancing. I am thrilled to have a drum of my own to bring to a local drum circle. The artist said that in making the drum he thought only of making people smile. He has succeeded. I am smiling and hope to share the joy. Thank you.

"Beautiful, but arrived damaged"

The mask is wonderful, but it arrived with a chip on the face. I can repair it, but it is sad to see such a nice work arriving damaged.
