These unique fair-trade ornament represents two kinds of falcon birds of prey. The peregrine falcon travels from the artic to the tropics is the fastest animal in the world. The orange-breasted falcon lives exclusively in neotropical forests - primarily now in South America. Either bird will look great hanging on your Christmas tree, rear-view mirror or adding a colorful touch to another part of your home. Displaying this unique craft will remind people about the importance of protecting tropical forests which host this and thousands of other unique kinds of wildlife.
The sale of these ornaments supports forest conservation and helps meet local needs in traditional communities in Peru. This craft was woven by artisans from the village San Francisco on the Maranon River with natural chambira palm fiber.
Please remember that each ornament was hand-made so the exact design of the craft may vary from the photo. This model comes in two sizes.
Models: ORB083 (peregrine falcon); ORB085 (orange-breasted falcon)
