Orange Peel Angel Ornament

Item # 36811
No longer available

A tiny angelic tableau crafted from recycled orange peel evokes a rustic wintertime spent near the hearth with friends and family. Handmade by Piel Acida, a small Colombian company that's known for creating visually appealing decorations by giving new life to discarded orange peels.

The most challenging task for Piel Acida is maintaining a stock of usable peels. Each day, a young courier rides his bicycle from house to house to collect peels -- only those with the best texture and color are used to make these eye-catching crafts.

In addition to its ten regular employees, Piel Acida employs fifteen "Mujer Empresaria" (businesswomen) who assemble orange peel crafts from home. Mostly single mothers, they are able to stay with their families while earning a living wage. In addition, Piel Acida provides them health and vacation benefits. A quality check is conducted before and after assembly to deliver the highest quality product to your door.

  • Recycled orange peel and paint
  • Approximately 2" dia. (5.1 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from Colombia

Display in a dry place inside the house and away from rooms with excessive moisture.
