The colorful photos and ads that once decorated the pages of a magazine come together to create a one-of-a-kind patterned ornament. Tightly coiled recycled paper is formed into an inspirational dragonfly for a homespun -- and eco-friendly -- holiday piece. This piece also generates an extra donation to support orphanages in Vietnam.

  • Recycled paper & twine
  • 3.5" H x 3" W (9 x 7.6 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from Vietnam

Due to the handmade and recycled nature of this product, no two will be alike. Please allow us to choose for you.

May 13, 2015 - Very different but great for a dragonfly lover.

January 14, 2014 - Most important - it helped feed shelter animals! Bought for friend with yoga studio with lots of dragonfly decor. Put on gift wrap as ornament - lovely! She really liked it too, and hung it in studio window.

January 9, 2014 - Very cute. I gave it as a gift so didn't have it long, but it seemed well made.

December 28, 2013 - This was a gift for our daughter-in-law. She loves all dragonflies and she definitely loved this one!

December 27, 2013 - This is adorable! it was a Christmas gift (that we GAVE) so I can't comment on the longevity, but I'm sure she loves it. We did.

Artisan: Tiger Lily

Artisan Tiger Lily

Located in the Phu Nghia sector of Vietnam's Ha Tav province, Tiger Lily is a company with a difference.

In an area with burgeoning air and water pollution, Tiger Lily values reducing, reusing, and recycling, and preserves trees and ponds inside its grounds. Instead of being thrown into landfills, old magazines and newspapers are re-purposed into beautiful and functional pieces of home decor.

Tiger Lily's designs fuse traditional Vietnamese design elements, such as bamboo, rattan, and lacquer, with a Western sense of aesthetics. The artisans' high levels of skill and patience is evident in every piece.

"As this kind of product becomes popular in Western countries, it means that more chances of jobs and improving their lives."

As a small, community-oriented company, Tiger Lily hopes for a bright future bringing new life to old materials, and fair trade wages to skillful artisans.
