Description

Bold and beautiful in organically-dyed pink and orange, MAHABA is a decorative piece of woven, kinetic art, designed to be hung either flat against a wall or as a floating mobile. 

Designed by Nina Howard of FLOC and woven by groups of women in small cooperatives across remote regions of Uganda, these MAHABA hangers are handwoven from natural raffia, wound stitch by stitch around a small bundle of sweetgrass. This woven hanger features three woven half-moons in hot pink, fringed in fronds of orange and pink and hung from a central thread. A pink pom pom finishes the piece with a playful flourish. 

Each section of this woven hanger moves independently, so it can be displayed in open space like a traditional mobile where its mesmerising movement can be fully appreciated, or hung flat against a wall. A hand stitched loop enables easy installation wherever you choose to showcase this wonderful work of African art.
