Anke Djé Tribal Table

Our stunning wooden Tribal Tables are handcrafted in Ghana, West Africa

and finished here in Australia.

Anke Djé, translates to “everyone gather together in peace”.

Each table has a beautiful Telephone Wire Basket underneath the removable  glass top

From the Zulu word meaning ‘with hands’, this project was established in 1996

in the subsistence farming area of KwaZulu-Natal province in South Africa where unemployment was up to 80%.

Bundles of telephone or electricty cable wire are cut and prepared for the weavers to take home.

The artisans take home as may bundles as they wish and use it to weave a bowl/basket from the outside inwards.

Depending on the skill of a weaver, a small 12cm bowl can take from 3 to 5 hours to complete, whilst a large 40cm basket can take up tp 40 hours to complete.

No two baskets will be identical as each artisan draws on their own creative knowledge base to produce unique designs and patterns for each product.

Once completed, the finished baskets are then returned, and the artisans are paid per basket.

They then select new bundles of wire in the quantities they decide upon to take home to transform into another beautiful product.

The beautiful Adinkra tribal carvings

On side of the tables are symbolic to the Ashanti kingdom,

each symbol has it’s own meaning.

List of Adinkra Symbols and their meaning in Ghana

Our unique tribal tables look fantastic in any traditional or modern contemporary

decor and can be used as a lamp table, side table, coffee table or simply a stunning stand alone signature piece.

We support the artisans of Africa and aim to keep the ancient skills of all tribes alive and well

through trade and exposure to a global market.
