    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 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.' An integral part of the organization's function is to educate the craftspeople on the need for reforestation to enable the products to be available for years to come and offer a sustainable income for generations.

    We have an African animal theme in our living room general area, so the carved napkins rings depicting six different animals are perfect with our decor. I traveled to Kenya years ago, but did not have interest in decorating with that theme until recently. I'm glad that Kenyans benefited from my purchase.

    I was looking forward to giving this as a gift to someone that appreciates handmade items, this was a big disappointment. Some of the figures were unrecognizable.

  • Quality & detail

    I ordered these napkin rings for my son's room. He wants a safari room & I am using these rings to attach his curtains to the curtain rods. I slid the rings over the rod then threaded the curtains along the rod & through the rings. Looks great & he loves it. I am sure these would make great napkin rings as they sit flat & are very detailed. The only negative, if you will, is the fact that only three of the six rings are painted/stained; the other three are simply natural wood. Thanks.

  • Took me back to Zanzibar

    It was a breathtaking trip through Kanya and Tanzania. We brought back several wood carved bowls, frames and other practical gifts. Every time I use one of them, I am immediately taken back to the golden hue of the endless plains on the Serengeti. I have been looking for lovely, elegant napkin rings for my table and came across these hand carved rings. The are beautifully made, some in natural wood, some painted in a natural pigment. They are just as beautiful as anything we bought while traveling. In fact, we'll keep it as our secret. The added bonus is that we are helping local artisans, which is also what we did while traveling. We went to the sheds where the artisans worked, not the typical tourist spots. These napkin rings come with a certification from the Jedando Modern Handicrafts an organization focusing on helping the artisans make a living. I googled it and they are legitimate.

  • Beautiful napkin ring set

    I never thought I was able to find such a nice set of napkin rings. I bought it for a gift towards a friend and she loved them very much that she has asked me to order another set to complete her large dining table. It is a beautiful addition to the dining decor.

    They are charming. Clearly African and perfectly adorable. I bought them to teach a 5 year old about setting the table and he could not be more enthusiastic now.
