Ethiopian religious icons come in a variety of forms decorated with colorful religious scenes from the Bible. Some are made of wood, triptych hand-painted, and others are round wooden plate paintings. They are bright and straightforward, with a lot of detail. Additionally, some are made in the form of modern art, which is transformed into storytelling pieces of art. All of these religious icons will make beautiful additions to any African art collection and will complement any decor, altar, or sacred space.

Welcome to koolDecor, your number one source for traditional Ethiopian home decorations and fashion accessories.
Mekdes Hagos, the founder and owner of koolDecor, began her professional life in the interior architecture field and worked for many years in the business. On a trip to Ethiopia in 2007, she met a textile weaver who introduced her to the woven fabrics of the country. Mekdes fell in love with the materials and wanted to incorporate the designs in the creation of something new. A few years later, through a partnership with Ethiopian textile weavers, koolDecor was established. Since then, Mekdes has collaborated with a wide range of artisans.
