Tour de France fever hits Tilnar Art

We, here at Tilnar Art, are getting very excited about the Tour de France starting in the UK and our big yellow support signs have now arrived.

When you are watching the race from the comfort of your home, whilst at work or on the route, please look out for our Giraffes, who have come all the way from Africa to support the Kenyan born British Defending Champion Chris Froome - they are his Biggest Fans!!!

There will be the chance to win one of our giraffes for the best spot or mention of the Giraffes that someone sees in the media and posts on Facebook.  #TourdeFrance  #GiraffesforFroome #Froomesbiggestfans.   We seem to be going viral on Twitter with even Chris Froome himself favouring our tweet!

All of us here at Tilnar Art are great cycling fans (some more so than others!), our very own Tom Hawes has taken part in a number of cycle events. Cycling is a great environmentally friendly way of travel and a fab way of exercising and keeping fit, whilst enjoying our beautiful countryside. Being a fair trade, ethical and ecological company we fully support any form of transport which reduces our carbon footprints.

Our stunning metal giraffe sculptures are hand made by a group of artists from Zimbabwe who are widely regarded as producing the highest quality metal sculptures available from Africa. Our customers have all been impressed with the quality and finish of this beautiful range.

All of our sculptures are marked with the artists' logo and come with a colour product tag with pictures of the artists. The products are Fair Trade and your purchases of these sculptures help provide a stable income and good standard of living for the artists and their families. The reclaimed metal is heated and once hot and malleable, is individually crafted to produce these fabulous sculptures that are then finished with a varnish. Many of these sculptures are displayed in gardens and we recommend a yearly coat of boat varnish to maintain the sculptures excellent condition if placed outside.

As each sculpture is individually made, each will be unique with its own markings and poses.

Good luck to all participants!
