Tribalismo Bracelet Stool
Bring African-inspired design to your interior with an eye-catching hand carved stool, inspired by a traditional kings bracelet stool from Bamileke tribes of Cameroon. Cracks inherent to the wood add further to its natural character. Artisans turn solid Margosa – a dense tropical wood – on a lathe, shaping and sanding by hand; before intricately carving the circular pattern throughout. Your piece will be finished per your specifications.
The Bamileke culture from which the inspiration for this stool came is as enticing as the design itself. The tribes are a collection of ethnic groups in the western highlands of Cameroon, who divide themselves into over 100 individual groups, each under the rule of a chief. The Bamileke did not consider themselves a single people until colonial times. Even today, individual Bamileke usually regard themselves as members of separate tribes. They are renowned craftsmen and their artwork was highly praised by early European visitors to their lands. Bamileke are particularly celebrated as carvers of wood, ivory, and horn and chief's compounds are notable for their intricately carved doorframes and columns.
How we would use it | As a graphic statement in a minimalist space, or in a custom color as a statement piece in a neutral interior
- Margosa Wood - a dense tropical hard wood from India. Our Margosa wooden designs are seasoned in a solar kiln, developing organic cracks and separations as the wood dries and shrinks. Time may accentuate these separations, or generate new ones. This movement is considered inherent to the natural beauty of the design.

- Interior Finish - Sealed with a cataylzed lacquer, our designs can be placed in interior residential or commercial spaces. This matte-sheen finish is long-lasting and meets KCMA durability requirements for commercial finishes. To best care for your new piece simply dust with a dry, soft cloth. Spot cleaning may be done with a damp soft cloth. A mild soap solution may be used. Avoid care products with ammonia, silicone or other chemicals which may harm the finish. BioShield® Hard Wax #32 has been applied for added protection. Periodic waxing will extend the life of the finish.
- Exterior Finish - Sealed with an exterior-grade penetrating oiled stain, specially formulated for exposure to sunlight, water and temperature changes, our designs can be placed outdoors, as well as in interior residential or commercial spaces. Wood that is exposed to elements will weather, turning to a silver-gray patina. Extreme temperatures, intense sunlight and moisture will hasten the aging process, while overhead coverage from the elements will slow the process. Wood, as with anything left outdoors, will be subject to airborne impurities such as pollen and dirt. Frequent hosing off of your furniture will help it stay clean and weather evenly. Inspect your piece several times a year for wear to the finish. Reapplication of finish is recommended every 6-24 months, or as wear is apparent.
- Reapply exterior oil to the wood every 6-24 months
- An outdoor furniture cover is recommended
- Store indoors during cold or inclement weather
- Remove from standing water
- New cracking may appear throughout the seasons
- Not recommended in extreme temperatures
