Nzito works with a large group of nearly 40 craftsmen who make original pieces each time. Furniture can be made for one-off venues like offices or restaurants, or for a group of lodges and hotels.
The team is managed by Nicola Swynnerton who is able to gather specific briefs from businesses interested in the furniture, manage the production with the team she works so closely with, as well as ensure delivery. Supporting fabrics and furniture details are sourced from within Zambia and around Africa.
Large orders are welcome, but furniture buyers need to be aware of the fact that lead times need to be managed carefully since each item is made by hand. Product specification sheets will include an indication of the expected construction time and this will be confirmed when a firm order is made with a 50% deposit.
