Hand-made banana leaf decoration – cyclist with luggage
Beautiful hand-crafted banana leaf decoration.
These decorations are hand-crafted by economically disadvantaged members of the Kamba tribe in Kenya.
Karibuni buys the carvings from a cooperative managed by Pauline Ntombura of Salom Enterprises which is recognised by the World Fairtrade Organisation. Fairtrade means that artists are paid a fair price in advance for their products and work in safe, if basic, conditions. It provides the framework for empowering disadvantaged people to make a fair living and provide for themselves, their families and community.
