    This handmade nativity set is the perfect accent piece for your seasonal decor. The decorative accessory is handcrafted out of banana fiber by artisans in Kenya.

    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, Bao Bab trees and mobiles.

  • 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.

  • Positive review

    Every year I buy my sister something from your World Stocks product line. We both love nativities. I saw this and read the reviews, they were all positive. When she opened the box she was amazed at the quality. We live 3000 miles apart and we put it together over the phone. We had fun deciding which characters were what. The box is beautiful and each character was intricate and wonderful. I would give this gift again.

  • Beautiful and unique

    What peaked my interest is where and how it was made and I was not disappointed when it arrived. It is small but intricately made. I also appreciated the fact that my purchase was enabling those in other countries to provide for their families.
