▴ ≜ About Handmade Tribal ≜ ▴
Long bus rides into the desert, discovering treasures in unknown places and connecting with locals off the "beaten path"... I love to seek out authentic, handmade tribal items. The love that goes into traditional handiwork is "felt" by those who wear it. Each style tells a story - of a tribe, a perspective, a culture. Each vintage piece carries history - of an event, a lifestyle, a family and sometimes of many generations.
In this section you will find specialty items handmade by a variety of skilled local artisans.
▲ Handmade items carry an energy that is rare today. Traditional textiles tell a story woven in love. One receives a deep understanding or "feel" for a culture simply through its handiwork. Each handmade item on this site is one-of-a-kind. I support fair trade and an ethical price. You will be able to read more about the item and it's cultural heritage in each section.
▲ Vintage items are occasionally refurbished and redesigned with modern materials. The "old" and the "new" harmoniously together give a sense of peace that is calming to the soul. There may be slight "imperfections" that reflect the history of each piece. Each vintage item is one-of-a-kind. Check each item's description for more information.
