MEET THE ARTISANS
This amazingly talented group of self-taught artists bring jacaranda wood to life at their studio in Kajiado, Kenya. A group of 35 men and women carve and paint these delicate pieces by hand. Each artist receives all of their training on site from current members.
I was thrilled with my order. They were absolutely beautiful. Both the carving and the painting are wonderful. The craftsmen and crastswomen who do this are extremely talented.
My husband and I returned from a 2 week vacation in South Africa. It was more than we could have imagined. He fell in luv with the Giraffes. For 30 years It my tradition to give special ornaments every Christmas. I ordered a hand carved giraffe. It is exquisitely made and the process from ordering to receiving was flawless and easy. Prices are outstanding for workmanship. A great company do great things for Africa!
I bought a giraffe ornament as a gift for my daughter-in-law. It is beautifully detailed. This is a small gift that I will happily put in her stocking.
