Tonga stools are one among hundreds of stools still being used in rural African villages. Beautifully hand-carved from one single piece of wood by the Tonga people of Zimbabwe, the stool holds great significance in African culture.

The stools have monumental sculptural forms, they come in a variety of designs and are typically used by aristocrats, elders and nobles as a portable seat during traditional meetings. Each Tonga stool is unique and individual, bearing the authentic wear of regular use which is seen in their warm patina and shine. Style as candle holders, table accessory or as a low side table.
