The natives gather the fruits of the Black Monkey Orange tree and the Baobab (Adonsia digitata) and make them into unique candleholders, candles, pencil tidies, pots, and ornaments.
They strip the skins wich is sun dried for several months, then decorated them with traditional designs, then hand polished using fine wax and oils. Some fruits are used in wire, glass and wicker baskets as attractive ornaments, and others in bathrooms and conservatories. The glassy smooth finish and design sets our product well apart from others on the market.
The candles are made from fine parafinnic wax and will burn drip free. When all the wax has burned out the holder may be refilled.
