The Chitungwiza Art Centre is Zimbabwe’s largest arts cooperative, with numerous prolific sculptors and artists that Nharo visits often.
Nharo started traveling to Zimbabwe in late 2002 and has been traveling back and forth ever since, doing business with various art cooperatives and individuals. We work to bring beautiful, original pieces to the North American market.
