Recycled Wire and Tusker Beer Cap "Bicycle" Pin
Kisumu, Kenya has long been known for atisans who make products from "easily obtained materials", a nice way of saying "trash". This novel jewelry reflects the latest Environmental vulnerability to hit the developing world. Fair Trade and recycled, it just doesn't get any better.
This darling little bicycle pin is made from recycled copper car engine wire and Tusker beer caps.
It measures just under 2.5 inches long and is packaged with the informative card as pictured.
The photo is representative of the pins in this listing. There may be slight differences as these are handmade.
Meet the Artisans
Creative Alternatives and TEMAK (Teenage Mothers and Girls Assocoiation) train individual artisans in western Kenya in the art of making crafts from readily available and Environmentally sound materials. Water hyacinth weed, tin sheets of misprinted bottle caps, recycled wire, tin cans and discarded phone cards, all find new lives as the artisans of Creative Alternatives creates greeting cards, ornaments, jewelry and functional products which they sell to provide a sustainable livelihood for their families.
Fair Trade means that artisans are paid a fair price in advance for their products and work in safe working conditions. It provides the framework for empowering the disadvantaged of the world to make a fair living and provide for themselves and their families.
