    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.

  • Fantastic!

    These handcrafted napkin rings are absolutely adorable and well made. My fear was that they wouldn't stand correctly and/or would be scratchy and would snag the napkins. Each animal stands perfectly and they are very smooth and easy to use. They are very complimentary to my dark brown and animal print dinnerware. I orderd two sets thinking that the extras will look nice as part of the centerpiece. I love them!

  • Adorable napkin rings - very entertaining for all!

    So excited to open the box - even more excited when I saw how well-made these are and how adorable. My grandchildren love them and they help to teach them napkin etiquette - great conversation pieces for the adults, as well! They are so fun to have; seems like they are begging us to come to the table and sit awhile - have made meals even more enjoyable. Would recommend them to anyone - young and old. Look great with my wooden plates and wooden flatware.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? The color and detail matched the picture and description to a tee.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Obviously crafted by artisans who love to create whimsical critters - adorable! These napkin rings are very well made.
    • How accurate was the sizing? Perfect size for cloth napkins.
    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
