Founded to bring the artistry of indigenous African design to the U.S., Ngala Trading Co. collaborates with artisans in Africa to produce its line of beautifully handcrafted lighting, furniture, and accents. The designs incorporate richly textured exotic materials, including leather, horn, and ostrich feathers, all sustainably sourced as part of ongoing conservation efforts.
Now into our sixth collection, we have refined our own definition of what constitutes the 'best of African design," and hope you find inspiration from the products we have curated.
Ngala Trading products offer a story. About the material. About the people who made the product. About the cultural meaning of an otherwise functional piece of decor or furniture.
We believe one of the leading differentiators between luxury and mass market products is the amount of handwork done by artisans at the source. Discerning consumers recognize the craftsmanship in
... a rattan chair that has been woven by hand,
... a side table carved from a single section of tree trunk,
... a cement and oak coffee table inlayed with more than 2,000 fragments of hatched ostrich egg
