Each piece is completely unique due to the nature of materials used so colours and designs will vary. If you would like more details of current models in stock please contact our customer service team.

THIS IS NOT A TOY. Not suitable for small children due to small parts and sharp edges.
Made in Madagascar.
One of our most popular ranges, these models are all hand-made from recycled tin cans by a co-operative in Madagascar, which provide Fair Trade employment to formerly impoverished artisans in crafts such as weaving, woodwork, bone carving and modelling recycled tin cans.
With the profits generated by these workshops, the Kapoaka artisans have been able to improve their houses, bought nice fields and have established pig breeding farms. Things which they would never have been able to do otherwise.
