About Us

 

  

LUANGISA Art Gallery was debuted in 1996 in Mount Vernon New York by the Luangisa Clan. The Luangisa Clan is from Bukoba, Tanzania. The Gallery is currently open by appointment only.

Our mission is to empower, connect and preserve the African culture and traditions. At the very core of what we do, more than anything we can think of – if we make both artisans and customers happy, we’ve succeeded!

We offer a unique selection of Fair Trade Authentic Modern African Art, Crafts, Fashion, Home Décor and Jewelry. Each product we sell is hand made of high quality wood, fabrics and materials with the greatest care.

Our sculptures are mostly made by the Makonde Tribe out of premium Ebony hardwood from Tanzania. Our decorative pillows are designed and produced on unique fabric and textile. Our extensive fine beaded Jewelry is inspired by the Masai tribe.

We are always developing new products; we work directly with African Artisans to bring the finest African Accents to you. The sale of every product on this site directly benefits the artisans who created it, which in turn helps many artisans in Africa in providing the essentials for their families and communities. Thank you for making a difference in their lives!

Because each item is handcrafted, there may be slight variances in size, shape, color and finish. No two products are alike. This is a particular benefit that we are very proud to offer our clients.

Thank you for adding a splash of Africa to your home and we hope you will find these products a wonderful addition to your home and collection.

All the very best to you!
