Uhlaba - Earth Trivet, Takhi Collection

This collection has been inspired by the four elements - Earth, Water, Fire and Air - which have been interpreted into contemporary designs and new techniques by the artisans.  

Takhi, the Siswati word meaning "designing" or "making on your own" is Gone Rural UK's first artisan-lead design collection.

"We grow our produce in the soil, we’re relying on it all the time. We call it our last home”

Inspired by the rolling ridges of the neighbouring mountains seen on the trivet's trim, and the changing seasons depicted in the colour gradients, Simangele Simelane, Tholakele Gina, Happy Dlamini have together crafted this beautiful grass woven trivet. A one off centre piece for your table or wall, or a set to dress any dinner or lunch gathering, this piece celebrates the earth.

Lutindzi - is sourced directly from the mountains of Eswatini.
All our materials are dyed using environmentally friendly, German dyes imported from South Africa
