PRODUCT STORY
The creation of these expressive gear-based critters links talented artisans working out of Vietnam and India. This ferocious dragon, 'gator, and scorpion get their spunk from salvaged industrial parts that have their fair share of gritty personality. An artisan based in Vietnam originally produced these spirited sculptures solo, but thanks to their infectious personalities and overwhelming popularity, production has expanded to India, as well. In both countries, these fair-trade artisans are empowered through craft and earn a living wage doing what they love. Handmade in Vietnam and India.

Reclaimed bike chains come to life thanks to fair-trade artisans in Vietnam and India. What do you think of these handmade critters?

I love the personality of these critters! We live on a bayou in Texas, so I would want the alligator.
