  • Celebrate this holiday season with a non-traditional tree! This 10" tall tree is made entirely of banana fiber and dried banana leaves. With it's many adjustable branches, it's a great place to hang ornaments and can also be used throughout the year as a jewelry holder.

    The tree is freestanding. Size: 18" T x 9" stem x 6" thick.

  • 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.
