Fun Fair Trade Accessories from South Africa

We just got another batch of GREAT fun Fair Trade accessories from our friends at Originals from Africa. We have rhinos, hippos, owls, buffalo’s……everything except the Ark! They are all available in our store at 324 S Campbell, Springfield, Missouri and will also be in our online store by the end of the day.

These quirky pieces originate from Cape Town, South Africa. The pieces are made from mixed metals, some of which are recycled. The pieces are formed by using a cast. Once the molded item has been made, the rough item is cooled, and then passed down the production line to the team of polishers. Here each piece is individually cleaned and checked for blemishes. Once the products have passed all the quality standards, they are assembled by hand by a group of ladies.
