ARTISAN | HAND-CRAFTED | ETHICALLY SOURCED

A Christmas Market favourite, these magical little angels are coming to us from the Baviaans region of South Africa's beautiful Karoo, the hand-crafted angels are produced by small craft cooperatives located within two remote villages.  The angel project is their only form of income and the success of the project has contributed a great deal to improving their lives and that of their communities.

Originally intended as a Christmas Tree decoration, the angels make beautiful gifts and can have a variety of uses.  We have seen them hung off the rear view mirror in a car, above a baby's crib, gifted or purchased in memory of a lost loved one or simply to add to a collection.

Size:  7-8 cm in length

Material:  knit or crocheted wire with beads and ostrich feather (locally sourced loose pieces)

Colour: Cream Ostrich feather bodies. 

All angel styles have names, many of which are after the ladies who make them and all have a meaning.

Valenta: Be Strong

Evette: The Living One
