Umlilo Fire Bellows are a proudly South African product, made by hand in Nottingham Road in the KwaZulu Natal Midlands. They are extremely unique and make a brilliant gift. Not only are they a stunning accessory for fireplaces or wood burning stoves, but are just as handy at the braai, pizza oven or firepit. They work brilliantly in getting the fire going without having to use blitz, so are environmentally friendly too.
Using only the finest quality hardwood, top grade leather, copper and selected hides, Umlilo bellows provide style and charm to all firesides or wood burning stoves. Our attention to detail workmanship, delivers a product that is not only wonderful to look at, but works like a charm too!
Each pair of bellows is delivered in a branded Umlilo hessian bag
Ethically Sourced Materials
African indigenous Nguni cattle, the most beautiful cattle in the world and the mainstay of traditional Zulu culture are known for their multi coloured hides and beautiful patterns. No two are alike. For this reason they have chosen to use these beautiful Nguni cattle of Zululand for our bellows.
As a by product of the beef industry, our Nguni hides are sustainably sourced from a tannery in Dundee in northern KwaZulu Natal.
The Zebra skins, their stripes providing a pattern of style and beauty that is unmatched in nature, are ethically sourced from responsible operators who use the proceeds to further develop and sustain Southern African wilderness areas. This conservation action is essential to protect the devastating effects of overpopulation.
