About

Kronbali is a family run company, founded in 1979.
Its founder, Jean-Marc, an antiques specialist, became restless and began traveling in search of rare items. With his wife, Sunshine, they spend their time traveling through West Africa, Indonesia, Pakistan, Yemen and India.
In India, they search for antique hand woven and embroidered textiles, traditional jewelry and wooden and marble statues. From Ladakh they bring back antique singing bowls, headdresses and ornaments.
Kronbali works with Cameroonian artisans who make feather headdresses in the traditional manner and also craft variations on these traditional pieces according to Jean-Marc’s specifications. These headdresses, called « Juju hats » have become very popular in the design world.
Kronbali specializes in one-of-a-kind pieces and hand crafted objects. The focus is on the beauty of the products and the human scale processes used to produce them.
Kronbali has been working internationally for over 30 years and their professional and private clients cover the globe.
