Sisal Floating Angel Ornaments (3.5 inch)


These floating Angels are handmade in Kenya using natural sisal and banana fiber.  * Measures approximately 3.5-inches tall.  * Each angel holds a special symbol; a harp, a horn, a star or has her hands uplifted in prayer. * Loop at the top for hanging. * Recycled, eco-friendly materials.  The Story Behind the Art: Women in the villages in Kenya, near Kitui, are educated and trained on the handmade craft of recycling the dried fiber of banana plants, which would normally be discarded. They use their talents to transform the banana fiber into new, eco-friendly art forms. First, the banana fiber is dried, and then a light varnish is applied.
