Tutsi Wooden Bangles reflect the astonishing ability of African sculptors to make an extraordinary form fit a simple function. Among the Tutsi of Rwanda, chiefs and warriors wore these bracelets to protect their wrists and arms from the bowstring after it was released. Tustsi Wooden Bangles are available in several colors and sizes, all with metal inlay designs, on an iron display stand.
Metallic colors provide a bolt of pizazz to a coffee table decorative installation while natural tone bracelets allow the succinct design of each piece’s form to show in nuanced sculptural distinctiveness. Please contact kanju with special color requests.
The word kanju translates to “creativity born of struggle” or “making more with less.” Nothing could be truer of the exquisite pieces and talented artisans with whom kanju works across the African continent.
