About the
Seller

Kumusha offers a range of handcrafted products, including exquisite Shona sculptures, unique indoor and outdoor decor, handmade textile goods, and crafts sourced from Zimbabwe and New Zealand. We bring together the beauty of authentic Shona stone sculptures and African art to create connections between distant worlds.

Our commitment to quality craftsmanship and cultural appreciation shines through in every piece we create. As a woman-owned company, we take pride in promoting shared sense of belonging and fostering love for African art and culture. Come home with us, and discover the beauty and history encompassed in every hand-carved creation.

Our name, 'Kumusha,' meaning 'homeland' in Shona, embodies the essence of connection, belonging, and identity. Through our art, we strive to share Zimbabwean cultural heritage with the people of New Zealand, embracing the concept of 'Hunhu' - 'I am because you are.' We believe that art connects us all, forging deeper connections and resonating with individual stories. 

Our sculptures are made mostly of stone from the geological family, Serpentine, which is both sedimentary and metamorphic. This hard stone is mined in small, open-cast, natural quarries by the artists themselves or locals, making little ecological impact, and providing an important source of income for communities. Colours range from yellow and green, through brown to black, and include black springstone, dark green opalstone, a yellow/green leopard rock, white dolomite, and purple cobalt. Springstone and leopard rock are the hardest varieties. Dense with fine grains and uniform structure making them ideal for sculpting.

Our handmade craft products are made here in New Zealand with materials from Southern Africa and New Zealand.
