The Learning Gallery Presents: The Ituri Collection
THE SILK TENT presents a line of eye catching jewelry inspired by the Mbuti Tribe, located in the Ituri Forest of the Democratic Republic of Congo. These unique designs come to life in a reinterpretation of patterns that capture the free spirit of "bamiki-bandura'' (children of the forest)
With this Ituri Line, the Silk Tent aspires to contribute a percentage of its proceeds to charities that aid the artisans of the Democratic Republic of Congo during its period of strife.
In helping to preserve their valuable talents, we also hope to expand this line into other related products that showcase their inspirational creativity.
