    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.

    • Not As I Expected

      The characters were not as well defined as I would like. If you don't know the Christmas Story you might not have any idea what the figures represent. They look as if they were made from a straw wrapper and just twisted. I knew the cost was for a good cause but I would never feel like the price was worth the product. The box is about the best deal of the set. I see many products and I order them from all over the world. I like supporting the work of people that don't have a way to make much money. This is the first item I have purchased that I won't even put out in my home. Had planned to give one to my pastor who spent weeks in Kenya and one for our son's family who also did summer missions in Kenya. Glad I only ordered 1 to see how it looks.

    • an unusual nativity set

      Received lots of positive comments on this set. It was a nice addition to my collection, lovely details, fine handwork. Even the box it came in had meticulous detail on the clasp.

    • 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.
