Made in: Eswatini
Artisan Group: Khutsala Artisan Center
These llamas are handcrafted by skilled artisans in Eswatini, Africa. One artisan starts the process by stringing beads on to a wire. This takes an experienced stringer about 1.5 hours. Another artisan builds the wireframe of each llama. The third artisan wraps the framed sculpture with the beaded string. This takes an experienced artisan a full day of work (8 hours).
The saddle on this adorable llama is made with authentic shweshwe fabric made in Africa. Shweshwe is a dyed cotton fabric that is widely used for traditional South African clothing.
FMSC sends millions of meals to children in Eswatini each year and these cute works of art are a wonderful reminder that as long as we continue to work together for a greater good - there is HOPE!
