Seedpod Puffin - SPPU

(H 7 cm L 7 cm)

 

These Fair Trade Seedpod Birds and Animals are handmade in Zimbabwe by Raina Mazwiembiri and her adult daughters.  They collect seedpods which have fallen from Ulumbu trees (Sterculia rogersii).  The seedpods are not found in quantity in the area where they live, so they have to travel seven hours to the Bulawayo area to pick them, and then travel back home. Standing on hand twisted wire feet, they are then hand painted and decorated in bright colours to produce these beautiful birds and animals, each with their own unique markings and poses.

 

The products are Fair Trade and your purchases of these seedpods help provide a stable income for the artists and their families.
