Tonga stools are one among hundreds of stools still being used in Africa.
These stools are named after the Tonga people who originated in South Africa and overtime migrated north. The stool is made from one solid piece of wood – usually a hardwood like teak or ironwood to ensure longevity. Tonga stools are African heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation.
As they are handmade, each stool has its own personality and therefore you may receive one that differs from the images.
They are great as ornaments, to give height to bowls on a buffet, a lovely place to keep your rings – so many uses.
