Large Beaded Gourd, BlueRegular price $375
This is a unique item.
One of the most impressive things about African craft is its ability to convert everyday raw materials into something special and beautiful.
In Africa, the omnipresent gourd is part of both daily and ceremonial life. A particular example of Congolese craftsmanship is our decorative deep blue beaded gourd which creates a wonderful balance between shape and color.
Every part of the process is worked by hand; selection of the gourd to cutting and cleaning, fashioning the removable top and creating the design.
Let our colorful gourd be a part of daily life in your home or give as a unique gift to someone special.

Most of our items are sent by USPS from New York City unless otherwise specified. Outside of the United States the cost of delivery calculated during checkout is based on weight of the package and its destination.

What about duties, customs, and additional fees?
Please be aware that all orders shipping outside of the United States, no matter which shipping option is used, may be subject to additional duties, import taxes, or brokerage or customs fees upon delivery.
These fees are calculated by your local government customs officials and we cannot estimate them prior to shipment. While we take steps to minimize or eliminate the cost of importing for our customers, we are required by law to provide accurate information to customs officials. Marking an order as a 'Gift' will not prevent fees from being charged.
Delays in customs are becoming increasingly common. Final delivery may take longer to some international destinations due to border restrictions and potential holds at customs.
Unfortunately, we cannot control or prevent this type of delay. Please be sure to include a local telephone number and email where you can be reached when placing your order. We recommend checking with your local customs authorities in advance of ordering to determine your country's specific import requirements.
