Zulu, earplugs

D: 7 cm
€ 450
The earplugs are made from a South African soft wood, iziqhaza, which is overlaid to one or both sides with brightly colored designs of vinyl cut from ‘Marley’ floor tiles; these finely worked mosaic overlays are glued and pinned in place. The earplugs were made by Zulu craftsmen and sold to migrant workers.
