Large Handmade Paper Angels from Kenya

  • Offered for the first time in the US, these sweet angel ornaments are crafted using paper that has been handmade by Sanctuary Artists of Kenya. Each ornament is lovingly assembled by mothers with disabled children, with proceeds going towards rehabilitation equipment.

    The artists use local waste vegetation such as banana tree bark skins, sugar cane, shed eucalyptus bark, nettles, and pumpkin leaves. These get beaten along with old used cotton rags into pulp which is pulled into sheets to form paper.

    Measures 4.5"L x 7"T (9" to top of loop).

  • Sanctuary Artists are a group of mothers of children with disability who have been trained and experienced in cardboard art and design, and paper making techniques since 2010.
