Black Malawi Table
Making and weaving Malawi products is a long labour intensive process which takes months of planning.
The Tiliaceae shrub is used as jute for the weaving of the product. The shrub grows in the summer months and the long roots are harvested, coiled and dried.
In the winter months there is no material available to weave these products, therefore weaving is limited to about 8 months of the year.
These products are extremely hard wearing and strong. The natural product can get damp– but drying quickly is essential, as it is an organic product and must not stay damp for long periods, as mould can settle.Size: 58 cm H x 44cm Dia (approx.)
