Beaded ZenZulu Turtle Ornament

Swahili Modern


  • This colorful turtle is sure to be a child's favorite ornament on the Christmas tree! Created using beads and wire, this bright turtle ornament comes to us from South Africa's KwaZulu-Natal province. Each ornament includes details such as coils, swirls, and facial features.

    These ornaments are manufactured to the highest quality standards, are eco-friendly and fairly traded, ensuring sustainable incomes for more than 350 home-based craft producers in South Africa.

    Ornaments measure between 3"-5" H. Due to the handmade nature of this item, variation is expected; each turtle shows a bright mix of colors.

  • ZenZulu is a South African craft business organized by designer Marisa Fick-Jordaan. Once consisting of only two master weavers, the business taught unemployed women how to bead and weave, with an emphasis on telephone wire. Today, this highly regarded organization ensures sustainable incomes for more than 350 home based craft producers in four different communities.
