Uniqwa Antique Naga Collection: A Rare & Exquisite Collectors' Piece
Discover the captivating Uniqwa Naga Antique Collection, a treasure salvaged from the enchanting Nagaland region in northeastern India. Nestled amidst the majestic Naga hills, rising gracefully from the Brahmaputra Valley, these extraordinary pieces hold a unique allure.
Hand-picked by Uniqwa's Head Designer, Charl van Heerden, these solid timber Naga Antique Grinders hold significant cultural and historical value among the Naga people and have a fascinating history that dates back centuries.
Naga grinders are rooted in the traditional food preparation practices of the Naga people. Naga grinders have been integral to processing various food items within Naga households for centuries.
These grinders have historically been used for various food preparations, including cereals, pulses, spices, and other ingredients. The Naga people relied on these tools to process grains for making flour, pound herbs and spices for culinary use, and crush ingredients to create traditional pastes and sauces.
Naga grinders embody the resourcefulness and self-sustainability of the Naga people, as these tools were essential for food preparation. Using Naga grinders also fosters community and social interaction, as grinding tasks are often shared among family members or neighbouring households. These grinding activities provided opportunities for bonding, storytelling, and passing down culinary traditions from one generation to another.
Naga grinders still hold a special place in preserving cultural heritage. They are often kept as decorative pieces or used on special occasions to connect with traditional food preparation methods and honour the Naga identity. Naga grinders reflect the Naga people's close relationship with their food, the importance of traditional food processing techniques, and the significance of communal engagement in culinary practices.
This extraordinary item is a unique and versatile piece that seamlessly blends history, functionality, and exquisite craftsmanship and can today be used as a captivating coffee table or side table for any living space.

Every Uniqwa piece has a story…
Our collections are mostly individually hand-made pieces. As most of our products are made from natural materials, texture, colour, and pattern may vary from piece to piece. Reclaimed timbers, naturally weathered materials and off-cuts otherwise discarded are frequently part of Uniqwa design features.
Natural splitting, cracking, and loss of natural oils may occur and form part of the characteristics and beauty of Uniqwa products. These are not viewed as imperfections or faults but as part of timber's natural life and beauty.
We believe the result of using natural materials and hand-crafted elements is a testament to the unique qualities found in materials originating from nature.
As every monitor displays different colour tones, the colour of pictures on our website and social media cannot be taken as a true colour indication of the actual products. Some product tones may appear to vary from catalogue or website images.
