Story Behind the Art
These students are orphans who have been left destitute and live in an area of Northern Zululand where the AIDS epidemic is very high. The purchase of this item assists the students to feed, clothe and educate themselves and give them a sense of pride and self-worth. Ilala Weavers is situated at Hluhluwe within the province of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. The organization was established some 30 years ago with a clear vision and objective of revitalizing and enhancing the age-old Zulu tradition of handcrafts which at the time were in danger of being lost forever. Today Ilala Weavers help over 2,000 Zulu people to attain self sufficiency by working from their homes and retain their lifestyle and rich heritage, which has been passed down through the generations by Zulu crafters whose modern counterparts today produce stunning works of art sought after the world over.

I have several pieces of "cooldrink" (soda) can art from South Africa. These angels may be my favorite - they're unusual and imaginative. The angels are sold in a pack of three, but each has a small note card attached that tells the story of the Peace Angels, the project in South Africa and the young men who made them. The six I purchased are all different and are now standing on a mantelpiece - where they are much admired. A single angel would be a lovely token gift. I am ordering several more sets for this purpose.Read More
Unusual tree ornaments which receive a lot of attention.Read More
These are fantastic ornaments! Very colorful, well made with a hangar on each that fits average sized branches. The soda cans that these are made from have vibrant colors and look great on the tree. I appreciate that there is a tag on each ornament that describes the program and who the proceeds benefit. Feels like a very worthy cause and these ornaments make great gifts. I liked them so much I ordered more!Read More
