Each Yoruban Beaded throne is unique and one-of-a-kind; an unparalleled conversation piece that instantly transforms a space and imbues it with wondrous and intricate sophistication and worldly glamor. Using thousands upon thousands of tiny glass seed beads, these functional and decorative artwork thrones are traditionally used by the kings and queens of the Yoruba tribe in West Africa. Each individually handmade Yoruban Beaded Throne requires the skilled artistry of master artists trained in centuries-old seed beading techniques preserved by the Yoruba tribe.
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.
