Artisan, Fair Trade sisal earrings are handmade by a one woman business in Rwanda. Sisal is an environmentally friendly, biodegradable, natural fibre which comes from the Agave Sisalana plant. This plant is native to Mexico but is a hardy plant that will grow well all year round in a hot climate in arid areas that are unsuitable for other crops. Sisal is durable and apparently repels dust and static. The beautiful, bright colours will fade if you leave the earrings in full sunlight for a long time but obviously they’re fine to wear. Bring some much needed joy into yours and your friends lives with these lovely earrings.
