Trano means "house" in Mand mint, this contemporary tribal look candle will transport you directly to summer. Trano means "house" in Malagasy and Baobab Collection have chosen this evocative name to celebrate home design, both inside and outside your house. The third collection of candles covered with raffia, the Trano collection has been hand crocheted by a cooperative of Malagasy women with an ancestral know-how that they pass on from mother to daughter. Inspired by the art of painting the outside of the walls of their houses with colourful frescoes and geometric patterns, Baobab Collection wants to highlight an artistic heritage, a collection between art and craft. With a view to preserving this endangered ancestral art, an association, MTAM (Mpumalanga Traditional Art Market), was created in South Africa. Its aim is to preserve and promote Ndebele art by helping artists make a living, this association enabled Baobab Collection to travel to South Africa and meet the Ndebele women artists and their daughters. It was with this in mind that Baobab Collection purchased and exhibited three Ndebele frescoes, and will donate part of the sales to the foundation.
