Story Behind the Art
Working with more than 100 individual carvers in Machakos, Kenya,Jedando Modern Handicrafts markets products primarily made of wood and bone worldwide. Carving is a tradition in Kenya with the children learning the craft from their parents. Carved by hand using only rudimentary hand tools, olive wood bowls, salad serving sets, and animal-shaped napkin rings take shape from pieces of olive wood, mahogany, and mpingo, or African Ebony.
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.

Just like pictured, but really charming in personRead More
Coffee table conversation....so adorable!Read More
Bought as toys for my grandchild, and probably not the best due to her young age. Also pretty square lines on the animals, so not very smooth.Read More
the idea is charming and I like to support hand crafting. But... The animals are crude and most importantly, only one of the animals in the set I received could stand up. If its not a big deal to you that the animals can't stand (as they are shown to be standing in the promotion photo) then ignore this review. The latch on the box I received was also not working. I kept the set anyway, despite the flaws. .Read More
These handmade animals are a perfect present for my grandaughter.she will love them as I doRead More
This was part of a theme I selected for Christmas gifts---handcrafted pieces from international artisans. I wasn't too sure if my grandson and niece's children would like this compared to the current technology, but the grandson said they were cool when I told him they were hand carved in Africa. The small basket was very nice and well made. It would buy a larger version of it for decorative purposes.Read More
I ordered this for my toddler for a Valentine's Day gift. He loves to name all of the animals. Great unique set for imaginative play. Great for room decor when he gets older. Great price, too!Read More
What a wonderful job the craftsman did on the woven box and the adorable carved wood animals. I was very pleased with my purchase and happy to have been able to help fund the craftsman in Kenya.Read More
These carved animals and box are wonderful. They are intricate, beautiful and will be a great addition to our children's collection of animale from around the world.Read More
This was my first time ordering from Overstock.com. I was a little reluctant, however, when I received this order I was very pleased. I loved it!!!! I am giving it as a gift to my daughter and I know that she will absolutely love it also. The detail in the craftsmanship in the hand-carving is awesome and to be able to take the banana leaves from a tree and incorporate them into a box totally amazes me. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family. I have ordered other items from World Stock because I was so impressed.Read More
