The mini version of our iconic Malawi chair, for special moments with your little one. Woven with a rich sense of cultural tradition together with a simple design, the chair is a striking eye-catcher. The comfortable proportions make it the perfect playful chair for reading magical fairytales. The cane reeds are harvested and dried in the hot African sun. Each Malawi Chair is manually woven along the shores of Lake Malawi, passing on this craft from generation to generation. Each artisan has his own signature, shown in the pattern of his weaving. Turning the chair upside down, you will find his name engraved in the wood. The craftsmen are small-scale farmers, organized in a local co-operative, weaving in between the planting or harvesting season. Support the prosperity chain and give the artisans a sustainable income to support their families while preserving their cultural heritage. Celebrate the art of artisans!
