We are thrilled to offer you a new collection of one of a kind, hand carved and decorated Fulani Calabash bowls! These beautiful works of art are made by the Fulani people, a primarily West and North African nomadic and pastoral tribe. Our bowls are made from hollowed out calabash gourds, and are traditionally made by women. The bowls are made large to be able to carry all kinds of wares to and from markets and to be used as storage.

For Fulani women, owning a collection of beautifully decorated calabash bowls is a source of great pride. Traditionally, a woman's calabash collection begins as a gift from her parents on her wedding day, but they are also given as gifts on various other auspicious occasions. As decorations, they look equally stunning hanging on a wall or perched on a large bookshelf. Features include: 

  • Stunning, one of a kind work of art
  • Hand carved, decorated and painted in Cameroon
  • Natural Calabash gourd color with whitewashed paint decoration
  • Made from a natural gourd - imperfections are part of what make each bowl unique 
  • Ornate patterns and designs 
  • Dimensions: 13 1/4  inch diameter at the top, 7 1/4 inches deep

Calabash Bowl

I love this bowl, it came very well wrapped and in a very large box so that it’s not damaged! The color is beautiful and it’s big enough to sit on my end table! I am so glad that I purchased this beautiful bowl and knowing that I am helping women be more self sufficient is even better!! I love ❤️ this bowl and will be making other purchases from Zeal!! Order this bowl because you will not be disappointed.
