Tibetan lama altars and Ethiopian coffee trays, Chinese armoires and Swat leather and wooden chairs, illustrate radically different cultures, and make for magical environments.
Symbols of status, clan markers, or protective charms, traditional adornment is beautiful, powerful and often was a way to store wealth safely while decorating the wearer.
Decorative, functional or ceremonial, these textiles are important cultural markers, symbols of status, skill and wealth to their makers and their communities, beautiful and full of meaning.

We offer more than 35 years of expertise in appraisal, restoration and care of folk art, textiles and antiquities. Visit us or call to arrange a consultation.
Spanning an astonishing variety of forms and materials — from masks to antique iron and copper currency — traditional, authentic tribal art is imbued with the history and traditions of the people who created it.
These simple handcrafted pieces, often made as toys or souvenirs, from common or recycled materials, are disappearing as craftsmen age and contemporary culture passes them by.
Since 1979, Indigo has offered another world of tribal art and artifacts.
