Handcrafted by members of the Tutsi community in Rwanda, the Tutsi Bowl is more than just an object; it’s an exquisitely crafted piece of African history reflecting a culture and artistic talent treasured by the Tutsi people of Rwanda for centuries.

Every curve, twist and notch of the bowl has been crafted by hand from one solid piece of wood, producing an eye-catching profile that blends traditional craftsmanship with contemporary style. No two bowls are exactly alike, each boasting its own special design that will elevate any room in your home.

Behind the beauty, there’s a story to be told. The skilled artisans in Rwanda have cultivated a heritage of woodworking that's been passed down through generations - giving each bowl a depth and character like no other. By owning this genuine artifact, you become part of that story: helping to preserve cultural history while also introducing something delightful and inspiring into your own home. 

Each Tutsi Bowl has its own individual story, with its patina, wear and aging adding to its charm and authenticity. Best of all, it has been lovingly restored using traditional techniques – these touches give each bowl a sense of character all its own.

Understanding Wood's Nature: Please note that wood is a natural, living material. It naturally responds to variations in humidity and temperature by expanding or contracting. As a result, it may shift, warp, or develop small cracks. These characteristics are part of the wood's natural beauty and do not indicate a defect. Therefore, they are not considered grounds for a return or exchange.
