Win By a Neck
Ancient Egyptians captured African giraffes and rafted them down the Nile for their rulers to keep as trophy pets. The origins of these African planters are decidedly more humble. Starting life as scrapped washers, nuts, and other metal pieces, they're salvaged and welded into one-of-a-kind giraffes by creator Tom Ateto and his team of Kenyan artisans. Designed to be adorned by your arrangement of small plants and/or succulents, these charming herbivores can also hold keys inside your entryway, or serve as eye-catching catchalls—a raft of uses, if you will. Handmade in Nairobi, Kenya.
