Handmade Artisan Craft: Ours stools are traditional crafts handmade by artisans in African villages. They have organic cracks and separations, which occur naturally as the wood dries and shrinks. Over time, some continued shrinkage may accentuate existing separations or generate new ones. This does not compromise the structural performance or integrity of the wood and is considered inherent to the natural beauty of the design. Each is slightly imperfect and one-of-a-kind.

Finish: Natural Cola Wood, Hand Painted White or Black
Care Instructions: Dust with a dry cloth.

Learn More : They're often referred to as "king's stools" because the most intricate ones were used as seats for tribal chiefs. Depending on the size of the tree trunk, stools can be small or large.

Most Bamileke stools are made in the grasslands region of Cameroon. Since they are each individually handmade, there will be a variation in size, shape and a slight difference in style. Some may have age cracks and material imperfections.

The culture from which they come is just as enticing as the stools themselves. The Bamileke tribes are a collection of ethnic groups in the western highlands of Cameroon, who divide themselves into over 100 individual groups, each under the rule of a chief. The Bamileke did not consider themselves a single people until colonial times. Even today, individual Bamileke usually regard themselves as members of separate tribes.

They are renowned craftsmen and their artwork was highly praised by early European visitors to their lands. Bamileke are particularly celebrated as carvers of wood, ivory, and horn and chief's compounds are notable for their intricately carved doorframes and columns.
