WOVEN WORLDWIDE

Handcrafted in Ghana

Shell Sculpture

STORY

Handcrafted using traditional weaving techniques, our stunning Shell Sculpture has been crafted with the authentic reed, reflective of nature’s natural state.

The intricately crafted home decor item will be the topic of discussion at any dinner party and elevate the decor aesthetic of just about any room. The beautiful freestyled weave is just a smidgen of what Our Partners bring to the table.

Each sculpture is made by a woman master weaver in Bolgatanga, Ghana, who has learned this skillset from her mother and other matriarchal figures in the community, during her childhood. Ancestral weaving skills have been passed forward from generation to generation. Handwoven from a sustainably sourced, durable fiber, this sculpture takes roughly 11 days to complete.

      Product Care

      Extend the life of your Woven Worldwide product with our after-care advice.

      Care

      Repeated contact with water will cause the appearance of the woven product (whether it is in its authentic reed or pigmented) to experience discolouration. Prolonged pressure from heavy objects will cause the shape of the product to be distorted. It is best to limit the exposure of such elements to preserve the authentic look and feel of your product.

      When using cosmetics, perfumes or any alcohol-based solutions such as hand sanitizers, please take time to be sure that they are dry on your skin before engaging with Woven Worldwide products.

      • Handcraft Nature

        Due to the handcrafted assembly, each sculpture is created with a slight variance in dimension. Imperfections in elephant grass are part of their nature too and should be celebrated.
