Tribalinks provides a link between skilled African artisans and the American marketplace. Founder Phyllis Woods is an intrepid world traveler and has been an importer and designer of African art and jewelry since the 1970’s. Her venture Tribalinks is dedicated to fair trade principles, and provides income for African craftsmen and their families.
Tribalinks offers a wide variety of African art pieces, hand-selected, including masks, stools, sculpture, textiles, and ethnographic jewelry. The countries represented include Mali, Ghana, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Togo, Niger, Nigeria, Mauritania, Nambia, Ethiopia, South Africa, and Burkina Faso.
Phyllis also has had many design consultancies over the years, with Aid to Artisans, USAID, Sigma One, UNSA and more. In addition, Phyllis has been a guest writer for the quarterly journal Ornament. She authored a story on the making of Fulani earrings of Mali, and also more recently about the Tucson Gem Show’s African Art Village.
We exhibit our full line, including Phyllis’s most recent designs, twice a year at the New York NOW Show. Please contact us if you would like to open a wholesale account.
