Ollie Giraffe - Cosmos - Artisan Made Fair Trade
This large, handmade wool Ollie Giraffe is just breathtaking!
This needle-felted-wool giraffe is a one-of-a-kind piece of art!
The sculpture is created from 100% local + organic merino wool, in northern Rwanda; the wool is naturally hand-dyed using organic plant matter! And, the merino wool they use is from their own flocks of sheep! (The sheep receive meticulous 24-hour care so they will be healthy and continue producing top quality wool).
Ollie Giraffe is made by young deaf women in Rwanda; creating these wool sculptures provides a dignified, purposeful employment for them. As they receive above fair trade wages for their skilled work, they are enabled to live a better life.
- Approximately 5" deep on all 4 sides, at the base; and approx. 18" tall!
- 100% organic merino wool
- A hefty, solid sculpture!
- Not intended to be a toy
