Cowrie Ileli Trade Bead Pillow

Ileli means “ladder” in Xhosa and cocoteeth are coconut shell pieces slivered into fine tooth-shaped beads. kanju’s Cocoteeth Ileli Pillow features beads that alternate to form a vertical patterned stepping ladder. The design’s simplicity draws attention to the gently varied curvature and natural texture of each Cocotooth, lending a sense of effortlessness and relaxed play.
