Raina's husband, George, started making seedpod birds as a means to earn extra income for their family in 1994. A few years later Raina joined him and together they sold their birds at local craft shops and markets. As her husband moved on to other endeavors Raina took over the enterprise on her own and now works with two of her daughters.
Handmade in Zimbabwe from pine cones and seedpods from the Ulmbu tree, this trio of miniature birds stand atop your desk or shelf on tiny twisted wire feet. Delicate hand-painted detail brings out the rich colors of the flamingo, ostrich, and kingfisher's plumage.
