The iconic Malawi Chair is fully handmade in Malawi. The chairs are made of Blue Gum Tree, and the woven sides are made of water reeds.

It takes an artisan approximately 10 days to create one chair, and its an important source of income in this beautiful yet very poor country. The traditional chairs are now proudly used all over the world:  in Cape Town, Ibiza and Amsterdam.

Africa is known for its immense creative scene, beautiful interior items and art. No wonder why magazines such as Vogue, VT Wonen, and Elle Decoration featured the Malawi Chair in recent editions.

The comfortable chairs are lightweight and are an authentic addition to ethnic or bohemian interiors. Whether inside as dining chairs, or outside as terrace chairs, it adds a beautiful edge to your interior.

MaMa Malawi sources from the artisans in Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world. Their intricate handicrafts offer one of the few means to make a living besides agriculture. Since most of the fertile land is in the hands of multinationals who grow tobacco, sugarcane or tea, there is very little choice in making a living. We are happy to support families, that can live a whole month of the proceeds of a chair. To support the many orphans, we give back 10 % of our profit to Kondanani Children’s Village, an orphanage in Malawi.
