Our mission is to bring the story and experience of Africa to life through crafted design. We envision a world where African design and craft are more woven into Western style and culture.
OUR STORY
From its origins as a boutique home furnishings outpost in Johannesburg, South Africa Ngala Trading has grown to become the largest supplier of luxury handcrafted African furniture, lighting & d├ęcor across North America. Founded in 2016, Ngala Trading collaborates with artisans across Africa who produce beautiful home goods crafted from richly textured exotic materials, including leather, horn and ostrich feathers.

We believe one of the leading differentiators between luxury and mass market products is the amount of handwork done by the artisans at the source. Discerning customers recognize the craftsmanship in a rattan chair that has been woven by hand, a side table carved from a single section of tree trunk or a cement oak coffee table inlaid with more than 2,000 fragments of hatched ostrich egg. Every piece in our catalogue is crafted to the highest standards of quality and artistry. Ngala Trading products offer more than just beauty and distinction... they offer a story. A story about the material, the people who made the product, and the cultural meaning of an otherwise functional piece

OUR PRODUCTS
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.

Every item in our collection is made from natural materials ~ thus one should expect (and cherish!) the slight irregularities in shape, color and finish that may occur. Furthermore, the hand-crafted nature of our production ensures no two products are identical. We believe the use of natural materials and handcrafted elements results in a finished product that is a testament to the unique qualities found in both the materials originating from nature, and the artisans who make them.
