Details:

Give your holiday decorations an authentic touch with this handmade banana fiber nativity set and gift box! This nativity scene adds a global flair that your friends and family can truly appreciate. An independent artisan in Kenya, Esther Kariuki, taught women in her village to create these nativity sets using the otherwise unused banana fiber, making this a product that both preserves a vital native culture and supports the environment. Each nativity set is handcrafted using these lightly varnished banana fibers, giving each set an individual, one of a kind look.

Details:

  • Crafted of banana fiber
  • Comes in a handmade gift box that doubles as a storage case.
  • Tallest piece measures 5.5 inches high
  • Box measures 5.25 inches wide x 7.25 inches long
  • Actual pieces may vary slightly in color, size or shape due to the handmade nature of each piece.

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 a variety of crafts.


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.
