DESCRIPTION 

The Palm Leaf Rainbow Wall Decor is part of a collection of hand crafted items called Wokongora (Wokongora means “beautiful” in the local Malawi language).

This beautiful children’s decor is dramatic, yet playful and cheerful with its vivid colors and detailed craftsmanship. It fits beautifully as nursery decor, playroom decor, bedroom decor or classroom decorations. It is truly a unique work of art that can take an artisan up to five days of weaving to make one piece; this underscores just how special this item is.

This beautifully hand woven piece was created by talented weavers using age-old basketry techniques that have been a cornerstone of civilization since the beginning of time.  

The art is made from local mulaza palm leaves that are harvested, dried, threaded, and dyed. The painstaking detail of each coil, sunburst, or stitch is evident in the intricate designs.
