This pink beaded flamingo sculpture is just one of the Heart for Africa beaded animals! The Momma or Baby Flamingo is perfect for your office, work, or home. Each of these African beaded flamingos is made in Eswatini, Africa by local artisans and contains over 4,000 beads!
Over ten hours of work is put into each flamingo. Since each product we carry is truly handmade, no two items are alike. These flamingos will be the perfect talking point for your next gathering. Shop with a purpose and support our efforts to provide a fair wage to our Khutsala Artisans with each purchase.
The creation of each flamingo involves a team of three Khutsala artisans. One strings the beads, one creates the frame, and one wraps the beads on the frame. It takes an experienced framer about 3 hours to make one frame, an experienced stringer about 1.5 hours to string the beads, and an experienced wrapper a full day (8 hours) to wrap one frame with beads.
All of our products are handcrafted in Eswatini, Africa. Eswatini has over a 70% unemployment rate and our goal is to support those in need. We currently employ over 100 people at Khutsala Artisans.
100% of all profits from all purchases are donated to support Project Cannan, a place of HOPE for orphans and vulnerable children in Eswatini. Spread hope and support with each purchase you make.
