    ITEM#: 11580769

    Give your holiday decorations an authentic touch with this handmade banana fiber nativity set and gift box from Global Crafts Decorative Accessories. This nativity scene adds a cultured flair that your friends and family can truly appreciate.

    An independent artisan in Kenya, Esther Kariuki taught women in her village to create these nativity sets using the otherwise unused banana fiber, making this a product that both preserves a vital native culture and supports the environment. Each nativity set is handcrafted using these lightly varnished banana fibers, giving each set an individual, one of a kind look.

    Product Features:
    • Pieces crafted of banana fiber
    • Comes in a handmade gift box
    • Tallest piece measures 5.5 inches high
    • Box measures 5.25 inches wide x 7.25 inches long

    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 items, including boxes, baobab trees and mobiles.

    What is Worldstock?

    The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

    • "Witchy"

      Bought as a CHRISTmas gift for my mother. Because we've traveled to South Africa, I thought she might appreciate the piece. Said it looked "witchy" but I think she kept it because she didn't want to have to pay to return.....

    • Delicate and Unusual

      The nativity set arrived very quickly & the first surprise was how lovely the banana leaf box is. Each character is delicately realized - I don't mean fragile - each has an almost whimsical quality. As one who lived for 21 years in Africa, I love the simplicity of design. If you like pretty, painted/detailed nativities this may not be for you. If you like African art or unusual interpretations of common themes, this is for you! I am buying another set to give as a gift..

    • Kenyan nativity

      The set came exactly as expected. The description is true to form. Figurines were beautifully done, and the storage box is handy (and also beautifully done). Shipping was prompt. No surprises. I gave this as a wedding gift and the bride/groom were ecstatic with it.

    • Unique Gift

      This beautiful nativity set made a unique gift for my loved one this Christmas. We were all amazed at the workmanship and tiny details included in each figurine. The set is interesting, and very attractive. Overall, a wonderful purchase! And, it looks much more expensive than the pictures seemed to suggest.
