Hand Carved Wood Penguin Ornament
Meet the Mifuko birds and bunnies! Hand carved from the fallen wood of local Jacaranda trees, these adorable little creatures are a perfect decoration all year round, but also make great Christmas tree decorations. Each unique piece is signed by the person who made it.
Mifuko's products are produced following the principles of fair trade. Their partner self help groups and workshops employ slum youth, people with disabilities and people with economically disadvantaged rural backgrounds.
All Mifuko products are handmade. There isn’t a lot of money invested - materials and skilled hands are all that is needed. By demand, maintaining a traditional skill pays off and is passed on to the younger generation. For the artisans Mifuko is an opportunity to improve their skills and invest in their workshops for increased income.
Mifuko is a certified member of World Fair Trade Organization WFTO.
