This unique card is handcrafted from water hyacinth paper, recycled wire and recycled tin cans twisted into the shape of two people playing guitars. It is blank inside for your message. The water hyacinth is a invasive weed in Lake Victoria causing environmental and economic havoc, and so local artisans have started to use it to make paper and other products. All the metal components are recycled from discarded metal from cars, old telephone lines, misprinted tin sheets and various other sources. Handmade by skilled artisans working with Hyacinth Crafts, one of our fair trade partners in Kenya.
As these are a recycled product the colours will vary, and it will be luck of the draw which colourway your receive.
Hyacinth Crafts achieves environmental protection through harvesting invasive water hyacinth, a plant which creates economic havoc in Lake Victoria. The hyacinth is made into rope and paper and then skilfully crafted into fun products by creative producers working collectively.Read more
