Muungano: Little Satans

Swedish designers Muungano created a new family of vinyl toys in collaboration with the Makonde tribe fromDar es Salaam, Tanzania.

These Shetanis, or "little Satans" have been individually hand-carved from ebony by the Makonde tribe who have been making similar figures for about 1500 years. In an attempt to both refresh the vinyl toy market and celebrate the ancient figure-carving skills and traditions of the Makonde, designs are created by Muungano and the Makonde together. The project is the collaborative brainchild of Swedish design collective Muungano, retailer A World Beneath, the designduo Sandberg & Timmonen and the Makonde tribe.
