    Story Behind the Art:
    Esther Kariuki is an independent artisan who, in her area of Kenya, near Kitui, has organized and trained women in her village to use the dried fiber of the banana plant, which would normally be discarded. The banana fiber is first dried, and then a light varnish applied. Once this process is complete craftspeople cut the fiber into thin strips to make several different items, including boxes, Bao Bab trees and mobiles. The varnish on the banana fiber with its many tones of brown resembles textured tortoise shell. Esther ensures the craftspeople are paid a fair wage for their goods, which has enabled many in her small village to earn a sustainable wage.

  • Beautiful!

    I was a bit nervous when I placed the order that it would be very fragile and may get damaged in transit. This is not the case. The pieces are very well-made and my fears were unfounded. This is a very beautiful set; I love it!

  • Banana Fiber Handmade Nativity Set

    Pretty little set. I got this for a friend who has almost every nativity set there is. On the ite it really looks so pretty. It is not quite as nice as I thought but I am glad I got it. It is much more costly than I would have paid had I seen it for real first. It comes with the top closed over the bottom and will be stored with the little people and two sheep inside. Nifty. The sheep look like Collie dogs though. Cute little wisemen with kind of gold color bands on the heads. The little baby is cute. The other figures are hard to tell what they are except the mother. Maybe Joseph has a staff. But nice little set.
