Newspaper Head Lines

Didn't you see the news? It's barging through the wall as a rhinoceros! Handmade in Haiti by artists displaced by the earthquake from 100% recycled newspaper, cardboard and paper, this statement piece is a thing of wild beauty. Comes with a hole in the back for hanging from single nail. Due to the reclaimed nature of the materials each rhino will vary.

Sales support artists in Carribean Craft, an FTC-supported job workshop for craftsmen living post-earthquake in temporary housing. The colorful and uplifting animal heads were designed collaboratively with Aid to Artisan designers, and support 200 Haitians rebuilding their lives through artwork.
