Our fair trade, African wire beaded snail is the perfect gift for the snail lover in your life. Brighten up your home office and library with this adorable little creature.
Each of our beaded wire sculptures are handcrafted by Khutsala artisans in Eswatini. These beaded animals take a team of three artisans several hours to make. One artisan will string the beads on to a wire, another will build the wire sculpture, and a third artisan wraps the beaded string around the sculpted frame. The entire process takes over 10 hours.
The snail is a symbol of time and progress. Give this gift as a reminder to not take on too much stress and rush into things.
These adorable wire beaded snail is the perfect, unique gift for the child in your life. Give the gift of an adorable little buddy and show your support for African artisans.
Over 50% of the population in Eswatini, Africa is living below the property line and make less than $2 per day. Our mission is to provide employment and support to these artisans. Over 100 people are currently employed at Khutsala Artisans and since each Swazi provides for 13 other family members on average, nearly 1,300 people are impacted in surrounding communities.
100% of the profits from each purchase made from Khutsala are directly donated to Project Canaan, a place of HOPE for orphans and vulnerable children in Africa. Spread hope to the children of Eswatini with each purchase.
