Gītī or Ing’ūrīkīro is a one-piece three-legged traditional stool that was used by Agīkūyū women in their house (nyūmba) while doing a daily chores and advising her female children. 

Our gītī stool has been hand-carved by master wood carvers from the traditionally-used trees of Mūringa, Mūrurī and Mūthaitī. The designs are original Agīkūyū designs that were used by women. They have been smoke-aged with sweet smelling olive (mūtamaiyū) wood to give them a rustic finish and antique smell.


Size: 14” diameter, 14” height
