Tribal Thread | Fabrics with a story
Tribal Thread provides a platform for African designed and manufactured gift-ware in New Zealand and Australia. Our goal is to be involved in the upliftment of artisan producers, sustainable practices and fair payment to all along the supply chain. Our fabrics have a story. Included in our range are Art-I-San fabrics featuring original San designs made by landless !Kung and Ju/’hoan living in northern and eastern Namibia. Barrydale Handweavers products come from a project that began training locals in the art of handweaving and has since become a tourist attraction in South Africa. Our iconic Kikoys – for those who prefer some colour in their world – are produced in Tanzania and may be familiar to visitors of Cape Town.
