These charming ornaments are made from fallen jacaranda tree branches, carved by hand for a unique touch. Hang them up on decorative branches, doors, windows or Christmas trees. You can also use them as keychains or to decorate your bags and purses.
Our wooden ornaments are made in Kapya Kitungwa's Fair Trade workshop in Kenya that employs refugees. Read more about how our ornaments are made.
This little bird is called Tumaini, trust in Swahili. It is our signature bird for Mifuko Trust, our non-profit organisation that improves the quality of life of rural communities in Eastern Kenya through donations and projects. All profits from the sale of Tumaini birds are donated to Mifuko Trust.
