These magnificent bookends are hand-carved from jacaranda wood by our Kenyan artisans. Hand-painted with native dyes, no two are ever alike. Set of two, each 8" x 7" x 4".

In an effort to do their part for ecological conservation, our artisans only source wood from naturally fallen trees to create these bookends. Because of this devotion to the environment, there may be some waiting time between your order and shipment as our artisans handcraft these wooden treasures, one at a time.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper echelon may delight in the exclusivity of an object, crafting culture permeates the trendy shops of modern-day, millennial Brooklyn, and led the grassroots, ultra-feminist Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s. From punk musicians to polished socialites, an appreciation for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wares is a common thread that connects us to our humanity. This work reminds us that our fingers can do so much more than just operate machines. It connects us to our cultures, our ancestors, our neighbors, and even strangers from faraway places, just through placing a single object between our palms.
