This gorgeous round Sun Mirror Frame is handmade along the shores of lake Malawi, from natural rattan. It is designed by Swedish designer Julia Nielsen. The mirror frame fuses indigenous craftsmanship and Scandinavian sophistication at its best.
It is inspired by the iconic Malawi Chair.
Each Malawi Sun Mirror Frame is manually woven with a rich sense of cultural tradition. The African cane reeds are harvested and dried in the hot African sun. The art of weaving cane is a family tradition. Each man has his own signature shown in the pattern of weaving.
The producers are small-scale farmers, organised in a local co-operative, weaving outside the planting or harvesting season. Support the prosperity chain and give the artisans a sustainable income to support their families while preserving their cultural heritage and celebrating the beautiful handicraft of cane weaving.
Mirror glass is optional. Size needed is diameter 45-47cm.
