Banana Fiber Umbrella Nativity Scene

  • Artisans in rural Kenya transform banana leaves and wood into a touching nativity scene portraying Joseph and Mary, wisemen, shepherds, and barn animals around baby Jesus.

    Banana palms thrive in East Africa's warm climate, and this nativity scene unites the Christian icon with strong elements of Africa tradition. Measures 7"L x 6"W x 10"T. Fair trade.

  • In Nairobi's Banana Hill suburb, artisans utilize the fiber of banana palm trees, which grow prolifically in East Africa, to create whimsical gifts for local sale and export. Esther heads up a small group of talented individuals with a penchant for creating collectible works of folk art using this sustainable, all-natural medium.
