Story Behind the Art:
Many Tribes in Africa believe a tree is a spirit and that each piece taken from the tree contains part of the spirit and should be treated with respect. These carvings originate from a village called Machakos in Kenya. Akamba tribesmen who produce these carvings use a knife and bladed tools only. A rough file and sandpaper is used to finish these pieces. No electrical tools are used. These carvings provide a livelihood for the tribes who often have no other source of income. Copper

    Yes, it is small but simply adorable !! The quality is perfection as are all Worldstock items. The pot could have many uses. My daughter has been in love with giraffes since she was given a stuffed giraffe as a child. Even though she is now 28, her love has not waned. She will be THRILLED with this quite different giraffe gift !!

    Absolutely a uniquely designed way for any type of use. I have a small plant in it right now until I have to remove the plant into a bigger planter. I may put some home made pouporie in it later. Definately recommend this product to anyone who likes variety in their home.

  • So cute
    Verified Purchase

    Very cute pot holder but small. You can't fit more than a four-inch pot in it. I change out inexpensive little plants seasonally.

  • Small but Cute
    Verified Purchase

    This Kenya made planter is very cute. It is not terribly large, but is a sweet addition to a room whether you use it as a planter or not. It seems to be made well. I have not tried a plant in it, as I don't want to get it wet at all. For now she sits on the lower tier of a living room end table and is quite contented in that spot. I love giraffes.

  • Love this guy!

    This plant holder is super adorable! I love that it's hand-made. It's small, but looks great just anywhere: the corner of your kitchen sink, windowsill, table, wherever! Just be careful not to get it wet because the fiber WILL change color (esp inside) and you don't want it to start rotting.

    I LOVE GIRAFFES!!! This plant holder is to die. I love world stock and all their super unique items. They are all so well made = hand made items are the best

  • Don't be disappointed
    Verified Purchase

    This is by far my least satisfying purchase from Overstock, and I shop here a lot. This item is very, very small--not much bigger than a starter pot, so if you're thinking of using it to repot it probably won't work so well. I ended up using plastic liner and putting a hole in the bottom because it wasn't worth the trouble of sending it back.

  • So different!
    Verified Purchase

    I love this planter! It's definitely a conversation piece and looks great with a strappy plant in it.

  • Adorable but not very practical
    Verified Purchase

    I thought this was so adorable when I saw it and snapped up the last one. It is adorable, but since it is not lined, I have to water the plant it holds ND ensure it is thoroughly dry before placing back on in here. Also, it's not very level as one of the legs is shorter than the other and it teeters a bit on a windowsill.
